The artistic vision of the Second Instrumental Unit is steadfast and resolute. We have built and continue to build a strong rapport with many of the great living composers of today and tomorrow: performing some of their most important works while working together with them to create new ones.
Our mission is simple: we strive, through the highest artistic standards possible, to foster and present what is new, what is compelling, what is diverse, and what will set the trends for the future musical landscape. We look for music that is pushing the boundaries of the possible, with a particular interest in emerging and underrepresented composers and works. We are unapologetic in our aim to make as much of this new repertoire accessible to the largest possible audience, presenting it not as a concert for a distant audience, but as an experience that elucidates the relevance of both the performance and the art in our lives and times.
"Members of the Second Instrumental Unit were utterly superb, putting the music across with accuracy and flair."
