Ensemble Uncaged: Palimpsest – In Focus 

Sunday • November 22, 2020   |   2:00 pm

“Longy’s premiere contemporary music ensemble presents the second in its Fall concert series. Palimpsest – In Focus is a diverse concert of new and recent chamber music compositions in which the musicians of Ensemble Uncaged shine a light on little-known and underrepresented contemporary composers. Explore with us as we examine the fundamental building blocks of music from many different perspectives, as well as the conceptual limits of what concert music looks like in the 21st century.

A palimpsest refers to a manuscript or paper whose original text has been rubbed off to make room for a new layer of writing. Even after removal, some of the original material may still be visible. Join Ensemble Uncaged as we put a spotlight on the music of today, illuminating our understanding of our connection to music of generations’ and centuries’ past.”
