“A new collective of some of the brightest young classical musicians in the world”—TimeOut NY

How does it feel to be a composer? To transform notes and melodies to express yourself?

You and your family, from crayon-loving children to tech-savvy teens, will feel the thrill of making music in an imaginative and interactive program from Decoda, an affiliate ensemble of Carnegie Hall.

Decoda introduces Brahms’s themes, then—in the ultimate interactive experience—the audience “transforms” those themes in real time: faster/slower, louder/softer, and much more. With Decoda’s help, the audience becomes composers! Decoda even asks the audience to send tweets directly to them onstage about their impressions of the music.

Decoda uses the tweets to further illuminate the performance—no longer just notes on a page, but transformations happening before your very ears and eyes. This is Brahms’s Clarinet Quintet as you’ve never heard it before!

Musicians from Decoda
     Owen Dalby, violin
     Anna Elashvili, violin
     Meena Bhasin, viola
     Claire Bryant, cello
     Moran Katz, clarinet

BRAHMS: Clarinet Quintet in B minor, Op. 115 (selections)
