"This was a beautiful program, performed
with grace and verve.
The Azure Ensemble is one of New York City's most exciting
new chamber music groups. Varied and notable repertoire is a hallmark
of the ensemble, which draws its members from the finest musicians in New
York City; a diverse instrumentation allows the performance of both traditional
and new repertoire that may not always fit neatly into standardized categories.
Original programming is a hallmark of The Azure Ensemble; the group
has commissioned and premiered numerous works by important contemporary composers,
including Yuriko Kojima, Pablo Ortiz, Anne LeBaron, Alan Shockley, Yoon Hee
Hwang, Amanda Harberg, Jeeyoung Kim, Marilyn Bliss, and Stella Sung.
Members of The Azure Ensemble have achieved notable reviews and credentials, including performances in Merkin Hall, Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, Wigmore Hall in London, Alice Tully Hall, the John Field Room of Irelands National Concert Hall, the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, and the Dame Myra Hess Memorial Concert Series in Chicago. Radio and television appearances include WNYC, WQXR, KNAU, and Britains BBC. Members of The Azure Ensemble have performed at the Aspen Music Festival and the Norfolk Contemporary Music Festival. They have produced critically acclaimed CDs on the Koch International Classics labels.
