New Milestones III: Scope (Dichotomy and Range)
Primarily a concert experience, supplemented with informational material to provide context, this series explores and unpacks the work of a wide-ranging selection of international composers. This group consciously includes women and people of color, but is also diverse in other ways; there are newcomers and standard-bearers; lovers of tonal melody and artists embracing dissonance; and important composers from the U.S. and many representing other parts of the world, notably Argentina, Australia, Canada, France, Jamaica, Japan, Portugal and Scotland.
Concerts in this series include a rich array of newly recorded performances along with archival recordings, interview clips, and supporting material to help introduce the composers to new audiences and deepen the listening experience for those already familiar with the composers and their work. A special section on the CMS Website will offer additional insights through extensive historical and biographical information along with program notes.
