The Airborne Toxic Event has gained a lot of attention for their lyrical arrangements, as well as their unique sound that can be described as a blend of Indie Rock music infused with a twist of classic orchestral arrangements. The five part band that formed in 2006 consists of Mikel Jollett, Steven Chen, Noah Harmon, Daren Taylor, and Anna Bulbrook, all of whose individual talents come together to create an impressive energy in their music and on stage. Their self-titled debut album topped Billboard’s “Heatseeker Chart” for an astounding 8 weeks, and the Los Angeles Times assures that it is easy to get “swept up in the boundless ambition” of the band’s second album All at Once. Their third album, Such Hot Blood, is set to release in 2013.
The Calder Quartet, called “superb” by The New York Times, defies boundaries through performing a broad range of repertoire at an exceptional level, always striving to channel the true intention of the work’s creator. Already the choice of many leading composers to perform their works, the group’s distinctive approach is exemplified by a musical curiosity brought to everything they perform, whether it’s classical or contemporary repertoire. Known for discovering, commissioning, recording and mentoring of some of today’s best emerging composers, the group continues to collaborate with artists across musical genres, spanning the ranges of the classical and contemporary music world.
Ensemble LPR is an elite assemblage of the finest New York-based concert musicians, personifying Le Poisson Rouge’s commitment to aesthetic diversity and artistic excellence. Members of the ensemble are graduates from the world’s most prestigious conservatory and university programs, and have performed at the Marlboro and Aspen Festivals and as a soloist with The New York Philharmonic and The New Jersey Symphony, to name a few accolades. There is no instrumentation too large or too small for the ensemble whose unyielding standard and rigorous devotion is to the music of the world’s finest living composers as much as it is to the common practice period of classical music and collaborations with artists of non-classical backgrounds.
