Momenta Festival VII: Distant Songs

Momenta Quartet

Elizabeth Brown: Just Visible in the Distance (2013)
Valentin Silvestrov: String Quartet no. 3 (2011)
Shawn Jaeger: Thy Wondering Eyes (2010)

Curated by Michael Haas
Momenta Quartet presents its annual Momenta Festival September 15-18, 2022 (rescheduled from June). Four nights of diverse chamber music programming, each curated by a different member of the quartet. With programs that blend the old and new, the "intriguing programming" (The New York Times) and "striking originality" (I Care If You Listen) of the Momenta Festival have been acclaimed by critics and fans alike.
In the words of Ukrainian composer Valentin Silvestrov, “Music is, above all, a chant, a song the world sings about itself.” Momenta explores the influence of song and the human voice on this program featuring recent works by Silvestrov and American composers Elizabeth Brown and Shawn Jaeger.
