Music on the Edge: Ensemble Linea Residency, Concert II


April 4, 2016 - 8:00pm

Ensemble Linea completes their residency at Pitt with a performance of compositions by Pitt Graduate Composers.

Founded in Strasbourg by pianist and conductor Jean-Philippe Wurtz in 1998, Ensemble Linea has, since its beginnings, been committed to promoting a democratization of contemporary music, giving priority to the encounter with the audience, to openness towards other artistic disciplines, and to an active booking strategy.

Beyond any schools and trends, the artistic project of Linea covers quite diverse aesthetic perspective, from musical theater to electronic music, from Western music to the rich Asian and American repertoires. Based in Alsace (eastern France, bordering on Germany and Switzerland), at the crossroads of many different cultures, Linea naturally approaches the repertoires in their multicultural dimension. Linea advocates an engaged music anchored in modernity: it favors works that question the mutations and complexities of our era.
