Known for his dramatic and unique style, Joseph Schwantner is one of the most prominent American composers today.

Each movement of his trilogy was conceived as an independent piece through three commissions across 29 years.

Schwantner says, “While each work is self-contained, I always envisioned the possibility that they could be combined to form a larger and more expansive three-movement formal design.”

UMWO fulfills the composer’s vision in honor of his 70th birthday, performing the premiere of all three works together, as part of a whole.
