This event has ended.

“In a nutshell,” ICE founder Claire Chase writes, “we believe Francesca Verunelli to be one of the most important voices to emerge from the IRCAM scene in decades.” An electroacoustic composer based in Paris, Verunelli is quietly becoming an artist to watch, with commissions from many of Europe’s top ensembles. In this Portrait, we’ll introduce her music to the United States, featuring the fruits of her close collaboration with the International Contemporary Ensemble. A highlight of the program is a new piece for flute and electronics, composed especially for Chase.
