Composers Concert: Orchestral Ensemble for Today’s Music (TM+)

Schoenberg Hall

Tonight’s program will feature contemporary compositions by UCLA composition faculty and students. Our visiting ensemble TM+ has made a name for itself as one of the first French ensembles dedicated to modern and classical works. This performance is an exciting opportunity to hear compelling new works interpreted by an ensemble devoted to contemporary repertoire.

Under the baton of Laurent Cuniot, TM+ has a nucleus of 22 musicians, all remarkably versatile, TM+ has been developing a rigorous, in-depth approach to the performance of works composed in the 20th and 21st centuries, with frequent incursions into a more distant past. Its goal is to foster a modern-day ensemble that takes into account past-present relationships. It raises questions about the links between composer and musicians, and between the musicians themselves.

TM+ has devised an alternative project for music dissemination, to create a new framework for the encounter between the public and the music, with the composer in the role of mediator. TM+ has been increasing these music encounters by way of open-house commented rehearsals, concert-discussions and many cultural actions in school, hospitals, and more. Being based in Nanterre (Paris suburbs) since 1996, TM+ conceived an extraordinary link with the audience.
