Ardesia is a contemporary ensemble dedicated to the performance, study and commissioning of new music. The trio of musicians that makes up Ardesia's core has been working together for more than three years, extending the range of technique and performance practice; challenging traditional sounds and textures; and working directly with composers to educate and refine their interpretations.
Ardesia's passion is to bring the relevance, depth and beauty of new music to the listener. The group's performances are collaborations with the audience, informing through words in pre- or post-recital conversations and through music in concert as it transcends the academic to reveal the spirit, intensity and emotion in today's classical music.
Note to our Audience Members: This concert will include a performance of a rarely-heard instrument called the ondes Martenot. Please check out the following link for more information on this most intriguing of instruments. http://www.peterpringle.com/ondes.html
