Portrait Concert of Ann Cleare’s Music at Miller Theatre, New York

 
An evening-length portrait of Associate Lecturer Ann Cleare’s music took place at Miller Theatre in New York on March 1st. The series has developed into “one of the most important habitats in New York’s new-music ecosystem”, each concert presenting an evening-long exploration of the work of a single living artist. The International Contemporary Ensemble, conducted by Steve Schick,  performed four of Ann’s works including the world premiere of teeth of light, tongue of waves, which was co-commissioned for the event by Miller Theatre and ICE.
