Composer Alive: Alexandre Lunsqui

lunsquiWe’re thrilled to announce Alexandre Lunsqui as the recipient of our 2013 Composer Alive commission.  One of Brazil’s most exciting composers today, Alexandre Lunsqui writes music of astounding rhythmic energy and inventive, peculiar timbre.

Alexandre will compose a new piece (currently titled TOY) for flute, clarinet, piano, violin, and cello in three installments.

Though we initially set out to record this piece in installments as we had done with the other Composer Alive projects, in a burst of inspiration, Alexandre wrote TOY all at once and so there is only one installment.
