Ensemble Pamplemousse presents recent works by and for Pamplemousse. In keeping with Pamplemousse tradition, the works run the gamut of contemporary American music and its commentary- Andrew Greenwald’s hyper hippie complexity; Natacha Diels’ intently distracted focus on performance gestures; Bryan Jacobs‘ aggressive electroacoustic virtuosity; Dave Broome’s protracted elaboration of dark pop humor; and Jessie Marino’s frantic character development and devolution. Together, the five works on the program describe the broad reach of American experimental music and provide a rigorous overview of Ensemble Pamplemousse’s approach to the current contemporary music scene.
