With Tuesday Musical as the lead commissioner, Andrew Norman is composing a new quartet for Escher. You can hear its world premiere on Akron’s EJ stage before audiences at Wigmore Hall in London, Lincoln Center and the Aspen Music Festival.

Escher and Tuesday Musical are in stellar company: Norman recently finished piano concertos for Emanual Ax and Jeffrey Kahane, with upcoming projects including a symphony for the Los Angeles Philharmonic and collaborations with Jeremy Denk, Jennifer Koh, the Berlin Philharmonic and the London Symphony.

Based in New York City and possessing an international reputation, Escher is Tuesday Musical’s quartet-in-residence and a favorite of our audiences. Joining them for this concert is new member Danbi Um.
