The mission of the Basso Moderno Duo is to promote the works of living composers from all over the world by educating nontraditional audiences about contemporary music. Solo bassists, Allan Von Schenkel and pianist Kristen Williams are extremely active in promoting the music of living composers, giving 80 plus recitals of new music each year. The Basso Moderno Duo has commissioned over 100 new works from celebrated composers in 40 countries and all 7 continents, started a festival, several concert series and created the Basically Modern Arts Sanctuary. They have pushed the limits of the solo bass and have redefined what was previously thought possible and then commissioned an entirely new repertoire by celebrated composers that reflect these advances. Most importantly we have helped promote the works of living masters from composers all over the world and continue to find creative ways to attract listeners to contemporary music.
