Limited attendance open ONLY by arrangement: call 919-660-3333. Duke Graduate composers Sarah Curzi, Eren Gümrükçüoglu, Dayton Kinney, and others engage with vocal ensemble New York Polyphony as part of the group's artist residency at Duke. Praised for a "rich, natural sound that's larger and more complex than the sum of its parts," (National Public Radio) New York Polyphony is one of the foremost vocal chamber ensembles active today. The four men, "singers of superb musicianship and vocal allure," (The New Yorker) give vibrant, modern voice to repertoire ranging from Gregorian chant to cutting-edge compositions. Their dedication to innovative programming, as well as a focus on rare and rediscovered Renaissance and medieval works, has not only earned New York Polyphony two GRAMMY nominations and wide acclaim, but also helped to move early music into the classical mainstream. This composer encounter is presented in assoc. with Duke Performances and the Office of the Vice Provost for the Arts. Duke Performances presents "Jeremy Denk & Stefan Jackiw: Ives Violin Sonatas with New York Polyphony" on Jan. 19 at 8 pm in Baldwin Auditorium. Tickets:
