New Work for Violin: Collaborations & Commissions

Josh has collaborated on ambitious new work for violin with the leading composers of his generation as well as emerging voices on the contemporary music scene, including Kate Soper, Alex Mincek, Eric Wubbels, Sam Pluta, Andrew Greenwald, Sky Macklay, Rick Burkhardt, Scott Wollschleger, Patrick Higgins, and Zach Seely, among many others.

Project highlights include Eric Wubbels’s “the children of fire come looking for fire”, a deeply creative, ambitious, and technically demanding work for violin and prepared piano (available on “Duos With Piano: Book I”, Carrier Records), written over a long period of close collaboration and performed with Eric Wubbels over the past 6 years.

Kate Soper’s “Cipher” for violin and soprano – workshopped and performed over the past 7 years, now as part of Soper’s chamber opera “Ipsa Dixit”.

Sam Pluta’s “hydra” for violin, piano and electronics – rooted in a decade of collaboration with Pluta and blending acousmatic music, live electronics, hyper-specific notated chamber music, and improvisation.
