Dal Niente Debuts
Dal Niente Debuts
Dal Niente is marking the arrival of the new concert season with "Dal Niente Debuts," a program that highlights composers new to Chicago and/or Ensemble Dal Niente. The largest piece on the program, a new work for ensemble by Julio Zúñiga, has been commissioned by the YouTube channel Score Follower as a result of its inaugural commission competition Follow My Score, which had music fans vote on their favorite video selected from an international pool of applicants. In addition to our first collaboration with Julio, Dal Niente's super duo of MingHuan Xu and Winston Choi will tackle virtuosic works by Christopher Wendell Jones and Sam Pluta, the latter of which will include Sam performing live electronics. Rounding out the program will be a nuanced solo composed by Alex Mincek and performed by Chris Wild. In performing works by Christopher, Alex, and Sam, Dal Niente will feature music by the newest composition faculty members at DePaul, Northwestern, and the University of Chicago, offering a glimpse at recent and future musical developments in our city.

Christopher Wendell Jones - A Crowd of Twisted Things for violin & piano
Alex Mincek - flutter for solo cello
Sam Pluta - hydra for violin, piano, electronics
Julio Zúñiga - World Premiere for soprano, harp, piano, viola
