The Generous Ensemble is very excited to announce that we will be performing in several concerts this October as a part of the 2013 Hartford New Music Festival.
HARTFORD NEW MUSIC FESTIVAL: 1913 | 2013
featuring resident composers Neely Bruce and Michael Schelle
The 20th century is such a hard act to follow that 21st century artists and historians find themselves in constant reflection lately, celebrating anniversaries, centennials and other such accidents of the calendar. But surely the hallmark year of 1913 itself is most appropriate for such treatment. The spirit of the 1913 that lopsidedly shaped our cultural past has gotten a little lost in the present. It’s with this in mind that we resurrect a new music festival in Hartford this year as The Hartford New Music Festival: 1913|2013, extolling the forward-thinking artistry of the past in order to blaze a more exciting future.
The “Indy Avant Garde” concert/installation – our small homage to the New York Armory show of 1913 – will only be introducing and reminding all who come of the expansive breath of possibilities art can take. While the dual forces of the Generous Ensemble and the Hartford Independent Chamber Orchestra aren’t necessarily presenting a “skandalkonzert” and our resident composers, Neely Bruce and Michael Schelle’s works are unlikely to cause a riot, we aim to ignite passions within our audience just as strong and with as lasting an unpredictable effect.
