Brett Campbell, Oregon ArtsWatch
Every time I hear FearNoMusic, I’m amazed that these master musicians, most of whom play leading roles in the Oregon Symphony, can pull off these challenging, never-before-heard works so convincingly in spite of their crowded schedules and no doubt inadequate rehearsal time. It demonstrates their deep and admirable commitment, not just to brand new sounds but also to subsequent performances of older contemporary works, which give the worthiest pieces a chance to enter the repertoire. These intrepid musicians certainly live up to their name.

Exploring and performing great music of the 20th and 21st centuries,
and promoting education and advancement of young composers.
