Description

Sasha Siem and the Mivos Quartet
9.29.12

Born in London to a British mother and Norwegian father, Sasha began playing the cello and writing, recording and performing her own songs at an early age. This year, Sasha will release her debut album - knots and do-nots - a daring collection of songs that entice us on an adventure to the frontiers of song and psyche.

She studied music at Cambridge and Harvard and by her early twenties, Sasha had written music for the London Symphony Orchestra, The Royal Opera House, Rambert Dance Company, Opera North, The Aldeburgh Festival, Le Nouvel Ensemble Moderne, Neue Vocalisten Stuttgart, The London Sinfonietta, and the London Philharmonic Orchestra. In 2010 she became one of the youngest people to win a prestigious British composer award.

*********************************
The Mivos Quartet, praised by Time Out New York as an excellent ensemble, is devoted to performing the works of contemporary composers, presenting new music to diverse audiences. Since the quartet's inception in 2008 they have performed and closely collaborated with an ever-expanding cadre of international composers who represent multiple aesthetics of contemporary classical composition. Commissioning and premiering new music for string quartet is essential to the quartet's mission; Mivos has performed works by emerging and established composers including Anna Clyne, Wolfgang Rihm, Alex Mincek, Samson Young, Luke DuBois, Philip Glass, Huang Ruo, Tristan Perich and Kirsten Broberg. They have appeared at venues including The Stone, Issue Project Room, Monkeytown, Roulette and the Brecht forum, and have appeared on concert series including Concerti Aperitivo (Udine, Italy), HellHOT! New Music Festival (Hong Kong), and Edgefest (Ann Arbor, MI). Mivos was one of five groups selected for the Young Ensembles Fellowship at the 2012 Darmstadt Internationalen Ferienkurse für Neue Musik.
