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.
Each concert offers an opportunity to become immersed in one composer’s singular style, as well as hear from them in-person during an onstage discussion. The 2015-16 season highlights three of America’s brightest young composers, Ashley Fure, Alex Mincek, and Hannah Lash, alongside international forces such as Iancu Dumitrescu and Hans Abrahamsen. The music in this year’s Composers Portraits—shimmering and lyrical, bold and inventive—explores a wealth of influences and sonic textures, illuminating the breadth of today’s musical landscape.
