Miranda Cuckson and Michael Hersch


Michael Hersch writes music that is “viscerally gripping and emotionally transformative” (New York Times), and is regularly performed all across the United States and Europe. In addition to compositions that have garnered him both the Berlin and Rome Prizes, Hersch is also a formidable pianist, tackling everything from transcribed Renaissance motets to the gnarliest masterpieces of the twentieth century.

As one of the most regular performers of Hersch’s work for over a decade, Violinist Miranda Cuckson “a prodigiously talented performer who can make even the thorniest contemporary score sing” (New York Times), has become one the composer’s most trusted interpreters.

Now, for one of the first times ever, Hersch joins Cuckson in a special performance of his works. Selections include music from in the snowy margins, Fourteen Pieces, the weather and landscape are on our side, one day may become menace, The Vanishing Pavilions, and the wreckage of flowers. The combination of these two prodigious talents promises to be nothing short of spectacular.
