Named for our flexibility to divide forces as needed and our interest in the musical structure of division itself, the work of di.vi.sion's 35-member core group has included numerous concerts in the Greater Metropolitan area. The group comprises experienced freelance players who have performed with many of the major orchestras, authentic-practice ensembles, and new music ensembles in the tri-state and New York. Their work has also been heard on television, radio, and many of the major record labels.
In addition to the classical repertoire ideally suited to the available combinations of our core group, we have demonstrated historic performance traditions in Buxtehude's Membra Jesu; given a complete cycle of Bach's Lutheran Masses; presented works by contemporary composers Lalo Schfrin, Gwyneth Walker, Thad Wheeler and Frank Zappa; and premiered David Hurd's Holy Apostles Mass.
di.vi.sion piano trio's debut CD di.vi.sion premieres: The Music of Merrill Clark is available through Albany, iTunes and Amazon. di.vi.sion has also recently recorded two major works by Douglas Anderson: Chamber Symphony No. 2 for Flute, Clarinet, Violin and Cello; and Chamber Symphony No. 4 for Piano Trio. These recordings will be released as part of Anderson: Chamber Symphonies 2, 3 and 4 on Ravello Records in January 2016.
