New Music on the Cutting Edge

“an essential source of adventurous new music”
—Alex Ross

Founded in 2000, The Argento Chamber Ensemble is a virtuoso ensemble dedicated to innovative musical performance and discovery of daring artistic paths. Championing cutting-edge contemporary composers, as well as framing classical repertoire in new contexts, Argento inspires musical inquiry through education, mentorship, technology, and dialogue.

From September 11 to 18, Moving Sounds 2015 delves into creativity, experimentation and critical thought in performances, interactive sound installations, film and video, and panel discussions.
