The Phoenix Ensemble is a mixed instrument chamber music group based in New York City. It was founded in 1991 with goals to inspire a new and diverse audience for classical music through live performances, recordings, and innovative community residencies. Through supporters such as the National Endowment for the Arts, it has been in residence at a wide range of venues, including NYC’s Greenwich House, the Aaron Copland School of Music, and the 92nd Street Y. The group also encourages the creation of new works, and sheds light on important unexplored music of our time. The Phoenix Ensemble’s previous recordings have received worldwide praise and include notable new and contemporary works, including the world premiere of Milton Babbitt’s Clarinet Quintet, and the music of Jonathan Dawe, Morton Feldman, Arnold Schoenberg, and Karlheinz Stockhausen.
