This event is free and open to the public.

The Mivos Quartet, percussionist Matthew Gold, and pianist Steven Beck will be presenting The Walden School School’s Creative Musicians Retreat with an evening of music including works by Annie Gosfield. The concert will be held in the Fountain Arts Building on the campus of The Dublin School.

The Mivos Quartet, “one of America’s most daring and ferocious new-music ensembles” (The Chicago Reader), is devoted to performing the works of contemporary composers, and presenting new music to diverse audiences. Comprised of violinists Olivia De Prato and Lauren Cauley, violist Victor Lowrie, and cellist Mariel Roberts, since 2008 they have performed works by emerging and established international composers who represent varied aesthetics of contemporary composition.

Matthew Gold is a percussionist in the Talea Ensemble, where he also serves as Director of Operations, and a member of the Talujon percussion group. An instructor at Williams College, he has also commissioned and premiered numerous new works and has performed frequently with the Da Capo Chamber Players, New York New Music Ensemble, Argento Chamber Ensemble, Washington Square Ensemble, ISCM Chamber Players, Ahn Trio, SEM Ensemble, New Juilliard Ensemble, and has been a member of the Aspen Contemporary Ensemble.

Described by The New Yorker as “one of the city’s most admired young pianists” and by The New York Times as “an eloquent and persuasive performer of contemporary works,” New York-based pianist Steven Beck has worked with Elliott Carter, Pierre Boulez, Henri Dutilleux, Charles Wuorinen, George Crumb, George Perle, and Poul Ruders, and performed with ensembles such as Speculum Musicae, the Metropolis Ensemble, the New York New Music Ensemble, and the Da Capo Chamber Players. He is a member of the Talea Ensemble and the Knights. He is also a member of Quattro Mani, a piano duo specializing in contemporary music.

Annie Gosfield, The Walden School Creative Musicians Retreat’s 2017 composer-in-residence, whom the BBC called “A one woman Hadron collider” works on the boundaries between notated and improvised music, electronic and acoustic sounds, refined timbres and noise. She was the recipient of a 2017 Guggenheim Fellowship in composition, has held the Darius Milhaud chair of composition at Mills College, and has taught at Princeton University and California Institute of the Arts.
