Aperture Duo Performs Works in Progress By UCLA Composition Students

classical
Ensemble Room: Evelyn & Mo Ostin Music Center Watch Livestream

The Aperture Duo visits the Department of Music for a residency with our Composition faculty and students. The residency is in three parts, with tonight being the first segment of the residency and showcasing performances of works in progress by our student composers. In January of 2023, the ensemble returns to the School for a pair of concerts, one featuring student works and the other featuring faculty pieces and works from the Duo's repertoire.

Lauded for their “precision and interpretation” and “distinct sense of unity and independence” (icareifyoulisten.com), Los Angeles-based Aperture Duo curates fearless programs that explore new sounds, voices, and techniques through the lens of violin and viola chamber music. Founded in 2015 by violinist Adrianne Pope and violist Linnea Powell, Aperture Duo actively commissions diverse new works from emerging and established composers to expand the violin and viola duo repertoire.

Performance credits include the LA Phil's Noon to Midnight Festival, Tuesdays @ Monk Space, the Main Stage at the Carlsbad Music Festival, Music at Boston Court, L.A. Signal Lab, Synchromy, Nadia Sirota's podcast Living Music, Brooklyn's Home Audio Concert Series, UC Santa Barbara Summer Music Festival, the Window Concert Series at the Craft in America Center, and the Hear Now Music Festival. Aperture Duo has been in residence at California Institute of the Arts, Avaloch Farm Music Institute, Las Positas College, Black House SoCal New Music Workshop, Eureka! Musical Minds of California Graduate Student Conference, and has designed educational concerts with Wild Up and the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra.

Aperture Duo is a 2021 recipient of the Fromm Foundation Commission, and is a project of the Fulcrum Arts' Emerge Fiscal Sponsorship Program. Their self-titled debut album, released in 2021 on Populist Records, can be found on Bandcamp.
