The Next Festival of Emerging Artists: Miranda Cuckson

6pm doors • 7pm show


The Next Festival of Emerging Artists has been described as holding a “unique place in the vastly diversifying field of new music.” Led by the festival’s founder and artistic director, Peter Askim, the young musicians of Next Festival 2019 are joined by violinist and contemporary music star Miranda Cuckson for a program including the U.S. premiere of Toshio Hosokawa’s Hika (2015) for violin and string orchestra, and Toru Takemitsu’s Nostalghia (1987) for violin and string orchestra; as well as three works for string orchestra alone: Aaron Jay Kernis’s Sarabanda in Memoriam (2004), Reena Esmail’s Teen Murti (2018); and the world premiere of a work by Peter Askim.
