ABOUT THIS SHOW
Ensemble Dal Niente performs new and experimental chamber music with dedication, virtuosity and an exploratory spirit. Now in its second decade, the Chicago-based ensemble produces concerts as singular experiences—as cultural breeding grounds where new art can grow and listeners can explore.
This May, the Dal Niente Woodwind Trio presents the world premiere of Victoria Cheah's luminous Undersea, along with a wide-ranging program featuring the full array of sounds available to contemporary woodwind players: from kaleidoscopic quarter tones, to ethereal trills, to jazzy pizzicatos. The flute, clarinet, and oboe blend together in wildly different sonic palettes that alternately sing, squeak, and pizzicato, with sounds that range from the delicate to the bombastic.
