Quartet by Steve Reich
Seven by Sam Pluta
Mediums by David Bird
Chora by Joseph DiPonio

Yarn/Wire is a quartet of two percussionists and two pianists. This instrumental combination allows the ensemble flexibility to slip effortlessly between classics of the repertoire and modern works that continue to forge new boundaries. Founded in 2005, Yarn/Wire is dedicated to expanding the repertoire written for its instrumentation, through commissions and collaborative initiatives that aim to build a new and lasting body of work. Influenced by its members’ experiences with classical music, avant-garde theatre, and rock music, Yarn/Wire champions a varied and probing repertoire.

"...compelling...Players Yarn/Wire - Ian Antonio and Russell Greenberg (percussion, pump organ), Laura Barger and Ning Yu (piano) - give a pungent performance, full of drama and unrest." - The Wire

"...questioning the boundaries of what music might be." - The Guardian

"fearless" / "restlessly curious" / "spellbinding virtuosity" / "spare, strange, and very, very new" - TimeOutNY
