Da Capo Chamber Players
Patricia Spencer, flute; Meighan Stoops, clarinet; Curtis Macomber, violin; James Wilson, cello; Blair McMillen, piano
Since its founding in 1970, the Naumburg-Award winning Da Capo Chamber Players has established itself as one of the foremost chamber ensembles in the United States. Hailed for its "agile, hair-raising" performances (The New York Times, 2005), Da Capo has long been a leader in contemporary music, pointing with pride to more than 100 works written especially for the ensemble. Da Capo has recently scored several major triumphs in Russia, performing at the Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory's "Moscow Forum," the Moscow Autumn Festival, St. Petersburg's "Sound Ways" Festival, and the Belarussian "Musical Autumn" in Minsk. The ensemble's New York concert series, presented annually since the group's founding, has included gala concerts honoring major composers and groundbreaking programs that stretch the definition of chamber music. Recent and upcoming highlights include critically-acclaimed performances of the music of George Perle and Arnold Schoenberg, music of George Crumb and Joan Tower (a unique collaboration with mime artist Yass Hakoshima), and CD recordings of music by composers Chinary Ung, Brian Fennelly, and Judith Shatin. Da Capo Chamber Players consists of Meighan Stoops, clarinet; Patricia Spencer, flute; Andre Emelianoff, cello; Curtis Macomber, violin; and Blair McMillen, piano.
