About The Event

CMA Concerts at Transformer Station

Called “top-notch in all respects” (Sequenza 21) and “an artist to be reckoned with” (Gramophone), violinist and violist Miranda Cuckson is highly acclaimed for her performances of a wide range of repertoire, from early eras to the most current creations. In demand as a soloist and chamber musician, she performs at such venues as the Berlin Philharmonie, Carnegie Hall, the Library of Congress, Miller Theatre, the 92nd Street Y, Guggenheim Museum, Austrian Cultural Forum, Bargemusic, Museum of Modern Art, Monday Evening Concerts in Los Angeles, and the Marlboro, Bard, Lincoln Center, Bridgehampton, Portland, and Bodensee festivals. Cuckson has in recent years earned a reputation as one of the foremost performer-interpreters of contemporary music. Her recently released recording of Luigi Nono’s ”La lontananza nostalgica utopica futura” for violin and electronics (Urlicht AudioVisual), with sound artist Christopher Burns, was named a Best Classical Recording of 2012 by the New York Times.
