The dynamic and inventive pianist Brianna Matzke has teamed up with New York City-based violinist Hajnal Pivnick and special guest pianist Kathleen Supové to commission seven important emerging composers to create innovative new works for piano and violin, as part of the Response Project initiative. The phrase "ON BEHALF" was drawn from an exchange between Killer Mike and Stephen Colbert on The Late Show. The composers - Will Ayers, Andy Costello, Alexandra du Bois, Molly Joyce, Nate May, DJ Sparr, andDorian Wallace - have been invited to consider how this phrase impacts them personally, politically, and/or artistically, as well as potential manifestations of the phrase within musical composition and performance. Each has chosen to create "on behalf" of an idea, person, community, or condition.
