New York, NY (Top40 Charts / The New Music for Strings Festival) The New Music For Strings Festival (NMFS) is delighted to announce the launch of its second annual season from June 21 to July 1, 2017. As the first festival concept of its kind in the world, NMFS seeks to explore the intersections between string playing and composition—between creation and interpretation. Under the motto "expanding tradition—imagining the future", New Music for Strings artists examine the boundaries between the intention of the composer and the interpretation of the performer through intense interdisciplinary collaboration. NMFS boasts an elite artist faculty for participants to work with, many of whom have established themselves as leaders in their field in the dual role of performer-composer. By highlighting this intersectional perspective throughout the festival, NMFS offers a variety of lectures, masterclasses and concerts on the dynamic interactions between these two intertwined fields of creation and interpretation. Hosted by Stony Brook University in 2017, NMFS brings together performers and composers of contemporary classical music from across the Atlantic.

"The first meeting of the New Music for Strings this past August was truly groundbreaking and will help shape, in an important way, the understanding of music from the past, from today, and for tomorrow"

— Philip Setzer, violinist, Emerson String Quartet and NMFS Faculty
NMFS showcases a roster of world-class musicians, ranging from members of the Grammy Award-winning and Avery Fisher Prize recipient Emerson String Quartet to faculty from Stony Brook University (NY) and Royal Academy of Music in Aarhus, Denmark. M-Prize semi-finalist The Parhelion Trio and Three Village Chamber Music players are the selected ensembles-in-residence. Resident faculty and artists of NMFS 2017 will be showcased alongside accomplished student participants that include graduate students from top conservatories and universities in the U.S. and Europe. The 10-day festival features sixteen events—including six concerts, four masterclasses, five lectures and a composition pre-festival workshop for high-school students. The season will culminate with a tour de force festival performance at Carnegie Hall's Weill Recital Hall, which will highlight the full roster of 27 festival artists from America and Scandinavia.

Join NMFS for the exciting concerts of contemporary American and Scandinavian music for—mostly—strings, performed by leading and up-and-coming artists and ensembles of the New York and Danish new-music scene.
