Modern Medieval

Julianna Barwick

A New Sounds Live co-presentation hosted by John Schaefer & streamed live on

Some of the greatest voices in contemporary music come together! Julianna Barwick’s ethereal, powerfully emotive voice paired with celebrated performers of early music ascends into a thrilling and truly ecstatic sonic world. Featuring premieres of new works by Barwick, Caleb Burhans, “New York’s mohawked Mozart” (Time Out New York), and Caroline Shaw, the youngest ever winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Music. The three-member super-group ModernMedieval features former Anonymous 4 founder Jacqueline Horner-Kwiatek and Roomful of Teeth’s Martha Cluver and Eliza Bagg.

Curator’s Note from Judd Greenstein
Julianna Barwick has been one of my favorite composer-performers for years, layering her own voice on top of itself to stunning effect. She was an obvious choice to commission for a collaboration with ModernMedieval, who will help her bring her new work into a new dimension, while also presenting their own dialogue between the contemporary and the medieval. I’m also thrilled to be able to commission Caroline and Caleb, two of the best composers writing for the voice today, to contribute new repertoire for this promising ensemble.
