DissoNuance comprises internationally acclaimed performers, composers, improvisers and thinking musicians, who live in New York City. We come from different backgrounds: Classical, Jazz, Flamenco, Rock and Folk music- but our passion for high-quality music unites us. We feel people are drawn to music regardless of its style or genre- but rather for its energy and quality.
DissoNuance proposes a creative programing, consisting of early, contemporary, folk, and classical music- all in one concert. Despite the different styles of the pieces, the consistant use of performers and the use of a unifying theme for each concert will create anorganic program, where a new musical language is invented for each concert.To watch a video presentation of DissoNuance go to the following link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xSK0ZgACJPs
