About the Series

PAIRINGS is a four-concert series of contemporary classical music that takes place each year in the Fall. Each concert features a young composer (or composers) "paired" with an established composer, each of whom were chosen by the new music ensemble that will present them.

Ensembles are chosen for their artistic excellence and continued contributions to the New York new music scene. These ensembles place tremendous faith in the music they present and take risks to explore composers and music not widely represented or well-known in the US. And thus there are two levels of pairing : the composer - composer pairing as well as the organic collaboration between composer and independent new music ensemble as a living cultural ecosystem.

Pairings is organized by Adam Mirza and produced by Amp.
