Ensemble Uncaged: Palimpsest – Traces Remain | Andy Kozar and Rachael Elliott, co-directors

Sunday • October 4, 2020   |   3:00 pm

Longy’s premiere contemporary music ensemble presents “Palimpsest – Traces Remain,” a concert of new and recent chamber music compositions exploring themes of love, belonging, betrayal and remorse from multiple angles. The diverse program includes music by Kenji Bunch, Katherine Dudney, Lou Harrison, Maya Miro Johnson, Amy Beth Kirsten (Longy composition faculty) and Alex Weiser, among others. The musicians of Ensemble Uncaged shine a light on emerging and underrepresented contemporary composers. Experience the joy of discovery as we uncover the fundamental building blocks of music and explore 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. Ensemble Uncaged exposes hidden connections across a multitude of styles, illuminating our understanding of our connection to music of generations’ and centuries’ past.
