Composer Portraits

Enno Poppe

JACK Quartet

Miller Theatre at Columbia University

This event has ended.

A sensation on Europe’s festival circuit and an established favorite among its leading new-music bands, Enno Poppe (b. 1969) is one of Germany’s most talked-about composers. The founder and conductor of Berlin’s ensemble mosaik, Poppe is as inspired by his experience with and love of chamber ensembles as it is by his theoretical interest in the nearly infinite permutations possible with even the tiniest musical motives. The new piano-percussion ensemble Yarn/Wire joins returning favorites the JACK Quartet for this fascinating Portrait.
