FLUX Quartet is dedicated to uncompromising repertoire, combining compositions by late 20th-century masters with tomorrow’s new voices. Having premiered more than 100 works by many of today’s musical trailblazers, the Quartet actively commissions and has been awarded grants from Chamber Music America and American Composers Forum, among other foundations. Founded in the late 1990s by violinist Tom Chiu, inspired by the open-ended spirit of the Fluxus movement, FLUX avidly collaborates with artists transcending stylistic boundaries, including choreographer Pam Tanowitz and visual artist Matthew Barney. Celebrating the new recording of Right Up On with iconic saxophonist/composer Oliver Lake, FLUX will also be releasing the string quartets of Conlon Nancarrow in the near future.
