About

3Corners Contemporary Music Project

 3Corners Contemporary Music Project was founded in Millerton, New York in 2010. Our goal is to present an exciting mix of the music being written, both today and in the 20th century, in our NOW! Concerts series. The inaugural concert was held in Millerton on September 18, 2010. Cellist Sophie Shao and the Kalmia String Quartet played works by Joan Tower, Kaija Saariaho, Shen Yiwen and other noted contemporary composers.

Founders:

Dianne Engleke loves music and the musicians who perform it. She draws them in performance and has portraits in the collections of, among others, pianist Alpin Hong, members of the Shanghai Quartet and cellist James Wilson. A common theme in her conversations with musicians was the limited number of venues for contemporary chamber music, even for those pieces commissioned by the musicians. Here one of the seeds was planted for the NOW! Concerts.

Mark Liebergall - has listened to chamber music for many years. A few years ago he realized that he wanted to hear contemporary chamber music performed live. But this music was not, by and large, included in the repertoire being presented in the music concerts he attended. He and his wife, Dianne Engleke, decided that the best way for them to be able to hear concerts devoted to contemporary chamber music would be to start a concert series devoted to it. He is an amateur composer and lives in Millerton, New York.

Nicholas Gordon (honorary)- President, Music Mountain. Music Mountain is the home of the oldest continuing summer chamber music festival in this country. Founded in 1930 as the permanent home for the Gordon String Quartet, one of the leading string quartets of its time, Music Mountain is celebrating its 80th anniversary season in 2009.
