Ince: Passion & Dreams / Present Music
Present Music has been a champion of contemporary music since its founding in 1982. The Milwaukee-based ensemble has worked closely with our generation’s foremost composers, and now releases their tenth studio album. The album focuses around the Turkish-American composer Kamran Ince, who has had a relationship with the ensemble for over two decades. Ten of Ince’s pieces have been commissioned by the ensemble. Ince’s compositions are characterized by the synthesis of Turkish and Balkan folk music and the traditions of European art music and American popular music. Ince led the recording sessions for this album himself.
