Ned Rothenberg

Previous Performances:

8:00PM, December 5, 2017
The Stone, NY

Since the record release, Mivos and Rothenberg have performed and toured together extensively, including appearances at the Edgefest (Ann Arbor, Michigan), the University of Pittsburgh, Hallwalls (Buffalo, NY) and Roulette. Mivos premiered Rothenberg’s new string quartet Viewfinder in 2012. Both works will be performed again in June 2013 at The Stone.

The group summoned subtle gradations of tone, before the final moments dissolved into an eerie, translucent sonic mist.

This is not about virtuosity, in spite of Rothenberg’s superb technique... Other kinds of music might entertain you, cheer you up or pump the blood, but his clarifies the mind and throws your soul wide open.
— Manfred Pabst, Neuer Züricher Zeit
Rothenberg reconciles an unapologetically cerebral approach with accessibility and emotional expression. No mean feat indeed.
— Peter Margarsak, Chicago Reader
Mivos played with spontaneity and dexterity.
