Meredith Monk

 b. 1942Photo credit: Jessie Froman


English    Deutsch    Español    

Meredith Monk has singlehandedly pioneered an entire genre of musical expression * Beginning with the vocal techniques she discovered in the mid-1960s, Monk's work soon came to incorporate theatrical elements, movement, and a poetic sensibility that is at once contemporary and utterly timeless * Has created more than 100 works in genres ranging from vocal solo and ensemble concerts to opera, film, recordings, and site-specific pieces * Since 1980 her music has been released on the ECM New Series label * Received a MacArthur Foundation "Genius" Award in 1995 * Was honored with a three-concert retrospective by Lincoln Center Festival 2000 * Named Musical America's 2012 Composer of the Year

Works by Meredith Monk include:
Weave (2010) for chorus and orchestra
Panda Chant II (1984) for chorus a cappella
Stringsongs (2005) for string quartet
Three Heavens and Hells (1992) for four voices

"When the time comes, perhaps a hundred years from now, to tally up achievements in the performing arts during the last third of the 20th century, one name that seems sure to loom large is that of Meredith Monk. In originality, in scope, in depth, there are few to rival her." — The Washington Post
