We finish off the Festival with a tour-de-force of new works for large and small ensembles featuring SIGNAL, called “one of the most vital groups of its kind” by the New York Times, and led by the phenomenally astonishing conductor Brad Lubman. MATA presents the final commission of 2012: a large-scale work by Francesco Filidei, a Paris-based Italian composer who is taking Europe by storm. Also featured: the vicious, heart-stopping Viola Quartet by Eric Wubbels, David Coll’s Position,Influence for soprano and electronics based on the speeches of Charles de Gaulle, Alex Freeman’s gorgeous work for solo Kantele (the Finnish folk instrument, played by Eva Alkula, who swoops in from Finland especially for this performance);and the Spanish-based Mexican composer Ivan Orozco’s glittering, salsa-influenced work for player piano and live pianist (the inimitable Kathleen Supové).

This evening will be hosted by Q2 Music’s Nadia Sirota
