Brightwork newmusic opens PIE's spring season with a concert featuring works by Chris Cerrone, John Luther Adams, Panayiotis Kokoras, and Benjamin Broening. They will also be premiering a new work by Tom Flaherty, co-commissioned by Brightwork and People Inside Electronics.

Brightwork newmusic is a classical new music sextet based in Los Angeles, California. A flexible and fearless group of world-class musicians, Brightwork consists of Aron Kallay (piano), Tereza Stanislav (violin), Sara Andon (flute), Brian Walsh (clarinet), Nick Terry (percussion), and will be joined by guest cellist Maggie Parkins. This instrumentation is often called “Pierrot + percussion,” and is to modern chamber music what the string quartet was to earlier centuries. Brightwork champions the best music that’s being written today, while continuing to play the classics of “new” music from the last hundred years.

We play the music we love, whether it's one of our favorite masterworks of the 20th century, or the latest dazzling score from a composer whose music we just discovered. At a Brightwork concert, listeners can expect exciting, emotionally engaging music presented with commitment and virtuosity. Brightwork seeks to draw the audience into the creative process at every show.
