TransAtlantic Ensemble featuring Mariam Adam, Clarinet and Evelyn Ulex, Piano
hailing from Berlin and New York, the TransAltantic Ensemble has been making music on either side of the Atlantic since 2005. As a forum for two dynamic leaders in today’s generation of chamber musicians, this ensemble of clarinet and piano is dedicated to directing the course of classical music’s evolution.
The Ensemble’s innovative repertoire, dynamic sound and engaging stage presence attracts audiences from the contemporary, crossover, classical, and jazz worlds.
Their international tours have included appearances in New York’s Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center, repeat performances throughout Berlin, and stops in Hamburg, Leipzig, and Costa Rica.
Central to the TransAtlantic Ensemble’s mission is collaborating with living composers. Their ongoing relationships with Paquito D’Rivera, Miguel del Aguila, Valerie Coleman, Jeff Scott, Mohammed Fairouz and Richard Padron have resulted in significant contributions to the clarinet and piano repertoire.
Interaction with audiences is a hallmark of TransAtlantic performances. The multilingual ensemble members enthusiastically communicate their love of live chamber music to music lovers of all ages and from diverse backgrounds.
They can be heard on E1 Entertainment (Koch classics) and Eroica.
JP Jofre and the New Tango Quintet
“A 29 year-old bandoneon master” according to the NYTimes, JP JOFRE will bring his soulful and electrifying compositions with his NEW TANGO QUINTET, for a contemporary take on the Tango.
Valerie Coleman, flute/composer
Composer and flutist Valerie Coleman “VCOLEMAN” is a distinct new voice in American music. Born and raised in the same West End neighborhood of Louisville’s legendary boxer, Mohammed Ali, Coleman began her music studies at the late age of eleven. By the age of fourteen, she had already written three full-length symphonies and had won several local and state flute competitions. Today, Coleman is the resident composer, flutist, and founder of the Grammy nominated wind quintet, Imani Winds. Through her ensemble, she has made significant contributions to the world of chamber music. Her performances and works are heard regularly on Classical radio stations throughout the country. She can be heard on NPR’s Performance Today, All Things Considered, and The Ed Gordon Show; WNYC’s Soundcheck, and MPR’s Saint Paul Sunday. Her ensemble currently has five internationally released albums on the E1 label (formerly known as Koch International Classics):
“The composer who (temporarily) made me forget Mozart.” The Broad Street Review
UMOJA (2002), The Classical Underground (2005), IMANI WINDS (2006), “Josephine Baker: A Life of Le Jazz Hot”(2007), and “This Christmas with Imani Winds” all of which feature Coleman’s arrangements and original works.
