About New Century Chamber Orchestra

The New Century Chamber Orchestra, one of only a handful of conductorless ensembles in the world, was founded in 1992. The 19-member string ensemble includes San Francisco Bay Area musicians and those who travel from across the U.S. and Europe to perform together. Musical decisions are made collaboratively, resulting in an enhanced level of commitment from the musicians to concerts of remarkable precision, passion, and power. In the 2017-2018 season, British violinist Daniel Hope takes the role of Artistic Partner and concertmaster for the ensemble, bringing new vibrancy and leadership to the orchestra. Hope is preceded by previous music directors Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg (2008-2017), Krista Bennion Feeney (1999-2006) and Stuart Canin (1992-1999).

In addition to performing classic pieces of chamber orchestra repertoire, New Century commissions important new works, breathes new life into rarely heard jewels of the past, and performs world premieres. Through the Featured Composer program, the orchestra commissions composers to write new works, with the goals of expanding chamber orchestra repertoire and providing audiences with a deeper understanding of today’s living composers. The orchestra provides insight into the breadth of the Featured Composer’s work by performing a variety of pieces by the composer throughout the season.

Beyond regular season concerts in the San Francisco Bay Area, New Century has toured nationally, with 2011 performances in the Midwest, East Coast, and Southern California garnered record-breaking audiences and national critical acclaim. In January and February 2013, New Century followed with a highly successful eight-state national tour, the largest and most ambitious artistic undertaking in the organization’s history. In addition to touring efforts, New Century’s national footprint has also continued to grow with a rapidly increasing national radio presence. The ensemble has been broadcast over 30 times on American Public Media’s Performance Today, with each broadcast heard on 260 radio stations across the country.

The orchestra has released seven compact discs. The most recent, From A to Z: 21st Century Concertos, is a compilation of four of New Century’s live world premiere performances of its newly commissioned works by William Bolcom, Ellen Taaffe Zwilich, Clarice Assad and Michael Daugherty. The recording was released in May 2014 on the NSS Music label.

Two additional albums were released on the NSS Music label, LIVE: Barber, Strauss, Mahler, released in November 2010, and Together, released in August 2009. The Orchestra’s first concert DVD, On Our Way, was released in May 2012, and weaves together documentary footage and a live tour concert from a February 2011 performance at the Broad Stage in Santa Monica. The DVD was filmed by Paola di Florio, director of the 1999 Academy Award-nominated film Speaking in Strings.

Other recordings include a 1996 collaborative project with Kent Nagano and Berkeley Symphony Orchestra featuring the work of 20th century Swiss composer Frank Martin, and Written With the Heart’s Blood, a 1997 Grammy Award finalist, both on the New Albion label. In 1998 the orchestra recorded and released works of Argentine composers Alberto Williams and Alberto Ginastera on the d’Note label, and, in 2004, the orchestra recorded and released Oculus, a CD of Kurt Rohde’s compositions on the Mondovibe label. All of the recordings have been distributed both in the United States and internationally.
