    The American Contemporary Music Ensemble presents works from fast-rising star Timo Andres, whose music “achieves an unhurried grandeur that has rarely been felt in American music since John Adams came on the scene” (The New Yorker). The program draws inspiration from diverse sources, including Schumann’s solo piano works and February weather in New England. The four sections of Thrive on Routine—“Morning,” “Potatoes,” “Passacaglia,” and “Coda”—are modeled after a description of composer Charles Ives' daily schedule, which involved rising early to dig potatoes and play Bach.

    ACME performs a program of chamber music by Caroline Shaw, 2013 winner of the Pulitzer Prize in Music. A composer, vocalist, violinist, violist, and NC native, Shaw was, at 30 years old, the youngest-ever winner of the Pulitzer for music; she performs as a member of ACME, as well as the new music vocal ensemble Roomful of Teeth. The centerpiece of this special Duke Performances program is Shaw’s 30-minute Ritornello for string quartet, which is performed alongside a film made by the composer and inspired by architecture, memory, and the tale of Rip Van Winkle. Of Ritornello, Shaw says, “[it] evokes the notion of time folding in on itself, repeating and forgetting and unfolding again.” The program also includes Entr’acte, which Shaw wrote for the Brentano Quartet, as well By & By, which features settings and lyrics from old gospel tunes with vocals by Shaw.
