What's New: Elena Ruehr

Feb 20, 2018
Christian Steiner

Her work has been described as “sumptuously scored and full of soaring melodies” by The New York Times, and “unspeakably gorgeous” by Gramophone! Composer Elena Ruehr is known for her lyrical and rhythmically vibrant music.  Her music "has an organic, breathing flow, derived from its origin in the movement of the body and the vitality of the natural world; her melodies often incorporate details and figurations of improvised performance, sometimes with exotic touches." Elena says her music that “the idea is that the surface be simple, the structure complex.”

We’ll hear chamber music from MIT composer Elena Ruehr on today’s What’s New.
