Yarn/Wire is a New York based percussion and piano quartet (Sae Hashimoto and Russell Greenberg, percussion; Laura Barger and Julia Den Boer, pianos) dedicated to the promotion of creative, experimental new music. The ensemble is admired globally for the energy and care it brings to performances of today’s most adventurous music, and New York Classical Review states that“Yarn/Wire may well be the most important new music ensemble on the classical scene today.” Founded in 2005, the ensemble seeks to expand the representation of composers so that it might begin to better reflect our communities and their creative potential.
Yarn/Wire plays Annea Lockwood:
New Zealand-born composer Annea Lockwood has always lived at the forefront of musical experimentation. From her early pieces crafting instruments out of glass to lighting pianos on fire to taking a tape recorder down the length of the Hudson River, she has relentlessly searched for music in places where we don’t usually expect to find it. She finds it here with the electrifying ensemble Yarn / Wire.
