This San Francisco-based group made its UMS debut in February 2011 to huge audience acclaim with a performance of remarkable precision, passion, and power. Their return appearance with artistic director Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg offers the area premiere of a new work that NCCO commissioned by U-M Professor Emeritus of Composition William Bolcom, as well as Heitor Villa-Lobos’ hauntingly beautiful Bachianas Brasileiras No. 5. “Salerno-Sonnenberg was and most definitely is a force to be reckoned with [and] the superb musicianship of her cohorts ensured that it was far more than her show.” (San Francisco Classical Voice)
