One of the Best Concerts of the Year… Modernism isn’t supposed to be this much fun.
…eclectic, intelligent taste in programming and a catchy way with a title.
…extraordinary intensity. The performance was fascinating.
…they provide a refuge from conventional rules and a chance to listen with a fresh and youthful ear.
Their whole concert showed a playfulness and unpretentiousness, coupled with a passionate commitment to the music, of whatever style, on their program.
…it would be hard to top a concert by a group that lives to its name — FearNoMusic… one of the most unusual programs of the year…
…never expect fearNoMusic’s programming to be doctrinaire.
FearNoMusic…play with a felicitous combination of easy rapport and tight ensemble.
Oregon Arts Watch
…a concert that dared actually feature composers from our own place and time qualifies as a momentous event. Which isn’t to disparage the remarkable efforts of one of the state’s most valuable performing arts ensembles, FearNoMusic — in fact, it shows just how critical they are to Portland’s artistic vitality.
