Israeli Chamber Project presents a program of four masterworks and one world premiere, kicking off their 10th anniversary U.S. tour.
ICP’s program features Schumann’s Piano Quintet, which captures both the intimacy as well as the directness of the chamber music medium and is one of his most recognizable works. Ravel’s genius as an orchestrator is on full display in the Introduction & Allegro, a brilliant septet with the harp taking center stage. Stravinsky’s Petrushka (1911), in a chamber version commissioned by ICP, and a virtuosic duet for clarinet and flute by Elliott Carter (1994) showcase two titans of the twentieth century making their mark at the outer edges of that epoch. These are joined by the world premiere of a new work by award-winning composer, Gilad Cohen, in his second commission for the ensemble.
Formed in 2008, the Israeli Chamber Project’s mission is to bring top-notch chamber music performances to both urban and rural venues in its native country as well as around the world. Whether performing in a remote kibbutz, an Arab town, the bustling metropolis of Los Angeles, or the serenity of New York City’s Morgan Library, the ICP has earned high praise from the media and enthusiastic accolades from audiences.
