The California EAR Unit

The EAR Unit performs with exuberance and razor-sharp precision.”" The New York Times

One of the finest contemporary chamber ensembles in America, the EAR Unit has been hailed for its unparalleled virtuosity and incandescent artistry. This evening’s program brings a selection of challenging new works composed in response to recent global turmoil. The centerpiece is Keeril Makan’s utterly riveting Target, featuring special guest artist Laurie Rubin -- the electrifying young soprano who brought down the house in the work’s world premiere at Carnegie Hall. Also on the program: Ge Gan-ru’s Si, an anguished elegy for the victims of Tiananmen Square; Ulrich Krieger’s elegant before Quake, Steven Rick’s Mild Violence; Hideko Kawamoto’s Burning; and Mary Jane Leach’s provocative Gulf War Syndrone.
