“Her tonal luster and variety of touch enliven everything she plays.” – The New York Times 

“One of the most sensitive and electric interpreters of new music.” – Downbeat Magazine

Violist and violinist Miranda Cuckson, renowned for her “undeniable musicality” (The New York Times) and celebrated as “a solo revelation” (ConcertoNet.com), presents an investigation of our human fascination with the world above and around us. Cuckson performs a set of contemporary pieces composed on themes of wind, air and light, featuring repertoire from living composers all across the world, including Dai Fujikura, Kaija Saariaho, Ileana Perez-Velasquez, Richard Barrett and Nina C. Young (present on electronics). Utilizing nothing more than Cuckson’s playing and electronics, each piece showcases the unique “warmth and humanity” (Cultured Cleveland) of Cuckson’s unforgettable musical voice.

Tickets: $15 ($10)

Composer Nina C. Young discusses her contributions to violinist Miranda Cuckson's Liquid Music performance on November 14, 2015 at Amsterdam Bar and Hall.

Miranda Cuckson harnesses the physicality and unique technicalities of her repertoire to "go organically with what the music needs" making her, as Downbeat Magazine notes, "one of the most sensitive and electric interpreters of new music."
