Hard Rain SoloistEnsemble plays a large range of modern and contemporary repertoire from the early twentieth century to music where the ink is still wet. We have a particular focus on music by our own local composers, but we play the most engaging, and iconic international repertoire too. Examples of some of the incredible international composers whose music we have interpreted in past seasons includes: Pierre Boulez, Toru Takemitsu, Iannis Xenakis, Bela Bartok, Tristan Murail, Steve Reich, Alban Berg, Joan Tower, Elliott Carter, Franco Donatoni, Missy Mazzolli, Morton Feldman, Gerard Grisey, Georg Friedrich Haas, Igor Stravinsky, Sofia Gubaidulina, George Crumb, Jonathan Harvey, Gyorgy Ligeti, Hans Werner Henze, Peter Maxwell Davis, Judith Weir, John Zorn, Olivier Messiaen, Anton Webern, Arvo Part, Anna Clyne, Salvatore Sciarrino, Gunther Schuller, Thea Musgrave, Anna Thorvaldsdottir, Sungji Hong, Tansy Davies and Arnold Schoenberg - by no means an exhaustive list!
