The New York Times Admires Locrian Chamber Players

“You have to admire the young musicians in the Locrian Chamber Players, not only because they devote themselves exclusively to music that is less than a decade old, but because they put their own compositions on the line as well, offering them alongside works by more established composers.”

The New York Times on Locrian Chamber Players

“The Locrian Chamber Players is an ensemble that only plays music written within the last ten years, and so these fine musicians are considered new-music champions. In the days when the great Classical works were being written, such devotion to the new was the norm; a group that concentrated on music older than ten years would have seemed quite odd. But given the timidity of most chamber ensembles, the Locrian’s adventurousness is all the more valuable.”
