A cornerstone of Miller’s programming, these evening-length musical profiles explore the work of a single composer in depth, offering contemporary composers and performers a space to explore, experiment, and make significant contributions to the field.
Dedicated to the adventurous artists and audiences at the forefront of new music, Composer Portraits champion the work of today’s most inspiring composers, and this season is no exception.
What story will the music of today tell to future generations? Each year, in Composer Portraits, we hear history in the making, as we listen in depth to the work of outstanding living composers from around the globe. This season, we spotlight artists from Japan, Sweden, Austria, and right here in the U.S., in a series that both The New York Times and The New Yorker have called an “indispensable” part of New York’s contemporary artistic landscape.
