Event Details

Unheard-of presents the in-person premiere of Reiko Füting’s act: ab-stain, from. Reiko’s work is based on the composition “Da pacem, domine” by Heinrich Schütz and hymn “O frommer Christ herzlich betracht” as set by Johann Hermann Schein, both written during the Thirty Years’ War. Reiko’s title references a question by Hannah Arendt, 20th century political historian and philosopher known for her work exploring the nature of power and evil. The question which appears in the last movement, “Could the activity of thinking as such be among the conditions that make humans abstain from evil-doing?”. The ensemble also performs CCI premieres by Zachary Bell, Zachary Ritter, and Brandon Kaplan.

Opening the concert, Fr. Dennis Schafer from the mission joins us to perform Homage a Manuel de Falla by Bela Kovacs and the “Romance” and “Fughetta” movements from Finzi’s Five Bagatelles.

This event is free and open to the public!


Ford Fourqurean (clarinet), Matheus Souza (violin), Iva Casian-Lakoš (cello), and Daniel Anastasio (piano) are Unheard-of, a Brooklyn-based clarinet, violin, cello, and piano quartet performing dedicated to connecting new music to communities in New York and across the United States through the development and performance of adventurous programs using technology and interactive multimedia. Unheard-of is committed to the idea that new music belongs in every community, and implements this mission through concerts and educational workshops throughout New York as well as on tour. Unheard-of originally started as a commissioning project by Ford and Daniel in 2014 to expand the chamber music repertoire for clarinet and piano. The group formed as a quartet in 2018 and has since grown into a nation-wide community across multiple artistic genres. With an approach that is open and welcoming of all voices, Unheard-of strives to be a vehicle for development and growth for voices novel and experienced, experimental, and traditional, uncomfortable and accessible.
