Third Sound is a collective of virtuoso performers drawn from New York City's finest chamber musicians. Conceived from a desire to present the complete literature as a rich and dynamic continuum, Third Sound brings together an accomplished group of musicians equally skilled in – and equally passionate about – the work of Bach, Beethoven, and Brahms as that of composers ranging from Schoenberg, Stravinsky, and Messiaen; Carter, Wuorinen, Adams, and Reich; to emerging composers of the early twenty-first century.
On Programs 2 and 3, Third Sound performs works by Cowell, Wang Lu, and Carl Ruggles. They also perform the world premiere of Eugene Birman and James Sofranko's The Sound of Your Solitude and Mine with SF Danceworks.
