Yarn/Wire is a New York-based percussion and piano quartet (Ian Antonio and Russell Greenberg, percussion / Laura Barger and Ning Yu, pianos). Noted for its “spellbinding virtuosity” (TimeOut NY) and “mesmerizing” performances (New York Times) the ensemble is admired for the energy and precision it brings to performances of today’s most adventurous music. Founded in 2005, Yarn/Wire is dedicated to building a lasting body of repertoire written for its instrumentation, through commissions and collaborations with composers such as Raphaël Cendo, Alex Mincek, Thomas Meadowcroft, Misato Mochizuki, Tristan Murail, and Kate Soper; the quartet has also given the US premieres of works by Enno Poppe, Stefano Gervasoni, and Georg Friedrich Haas. Yarn/Wire appears internationally at prominent festivals and venues including the Lincoln Center Festival, BAM, Festival of New American Music, London’s Barbican Centre, the Edinburgh International Festival, and Shanghai Symphony Orchestra Hall. Their ongoing series, Yarn/Wire/Currents, serves as an incubator for experimental music in New York City.
