Since its founding in 1970, the Naumburg-Award winning Da Capo Chamber Players has established itself as one of the foremost chamber ensembles in the United States. Hailed for its "agile, hair-raising" performances (The New York Times, 2005), Da Capo has long been a leader in contemporary music, pointing with pride to nearly 100 works written especially for the ensemble. Da Capo has recently scored several major triumphs in Russia, performing at the Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory's "Moscow Forum," the Moscow Autumn Festival, St. Petersburg's "Sound Ways" Festival, and the Belarussian "Musical Autumn" in Minsk.
The Da Capo Chamber Players program for the evening will include works by U VA graduate composition students, plus works by American composers: Elliott Carter's Canon for 4; Daniel Godfrey's Luna Rugosa, and Joan Tower's Petroushskates."
Arts Enhancement Events are supported by the Provost's Office to increase the awareness of and support for the arts at the University of Virginia.
Da Capo Chamber Players Colloquium
The Da Capo Chamber Players will give a lecture entitled "Interpreting New Music". This will be a demonstration and discussion on how to approach performing new music. They will be sharing their experiences of performing a tremendous variety of new music. The Da Capo Chamber Players have performed such new music from composers such as Phillip Glass, Paul Lansky and Joan Tower.
