The Locrian Chamber Players are a group of performers and composers dedicated to the music of our time. Their concerts are devoted exclusively to works less than a decade old, and their programs include both established and emerging composers. They perform contemporary music without pre-concert discussions and voluminous program notes, believing that the best music, when presented directly, speaks for itself. Since their first concert in 1995, The Locrian Chamber Players have presented over thirty world premieres and have given first New York performances of works by George Crumb, Philip Glass, Morton Subotnick, Joan LaBarbara, James Tenney, Alvin Curran, George Tsontakis, Roger Reynolds, Jo Kondo and many others.
