Event Description

 Eun Mi Ko Strings and Hammers

Strings & Hammers is a twist of the traditional piano trio with violin and cello. Founded by Eunmi Ko, Sini Virtanen, and Julia Keller, the ensemble has the unusual instrumentation of piano, violin, and double bass. The members met each other at the Eastman School of Music while they were graduate students there. They shared the common interest in chamber music and new music, and naturally, they started playing together in 2013. The ensemble explores chamber music repertoire of the twentieth and twenty-first century and commissions works from emerging composers. In 2013, Strings & Hammers gave their inaugural concert sponsored by the Skalny Center for the Polish and Central European Studies at the University of Rochester, playing music by Krzysztof Penderecki to celebrate his 80th birthday. In 2014, the ensemble commissioned works for violin, double bass, and piano from five different composers. The Premiere Project presented music of Alessandro Annunziata, David Jenssen, Seunghee Lee, John Liberatore, and Gilad Rabinovitch. In 2015, Strings & Hammers featured as guest ensemble at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford and the New Music Consortium at University of South Florida, and The Hyperbolic Chamber Music Series at the Venture Compound. In 2016 and 2017, their new partners are composer Fabio Massimo Capogrosso, Michael Frazier, David Liptak, Eduardo Costa Roldan, Alejandro Roman, Baljinder Sekhon. The Premiere concert will take place at COMA’16 in Spain. For more information, please visit ensemble’s facebook page: facebook.com/StringsHammers
