About the Los Angeles New Music Ensemble

The Los Angeles New Music Ensemble was formed in 2007 with the purpose of promoting new classical music, collaboration within the arts, the commissioning of new works, and the creation of multimedia presentations within innovative live performances. The focus is on commissioning new classical chamber works and preserving chamber music written after 1900. The promotion and preservation of this music is accomplished through five activities:

1) The discovery of appropriate music for performance through research, a yearly call for scores, and commissioning projects.

2) The performance of the chosen music in a series of concerts during the summer months.

3) The recording of the chosen music for release on CD and through the internet.

4) The publishing of the chosen music and its parts with edited markings by the Los Angeles New Music Ensemble members.

5) The creation of an up-to-date list of works for the LANME Quartet (flute, violin, clarinet, cello) that is easily accessible on the LANME website in order to help facilitate performances and continue to build the repertoire for this instrumentation.
