Composer Portraits

Dai Fujikura

Thursday, March 5, 2020, 8pm

This event has ended.

The works of Dai Fujikura are performed with regularity by conductors such as Gustavo Dudamel and by some of the most acclaimed orchestras and ensembles in the world. As one of the leading voices of his generation, his signature “high octane instrumental writing” (The Guardian) will be exhibited in this Portrait featuring International Contemporary Ensemble, longtime champions of Fujikura. A selection of recent chamber works provide a glimpse into his unique soundworld, including Minina—inspired by the birth of his daughter—and abandoned time written for electric guitar and ensemble.   


  • Gliding Wings (2019) world premiere, Miller Theatre co-commission
  • Minina (2013)
  • silence seeking solace (2013)
  • secret forest (2008)
  • abandoned time (2004, rev. 2006)
