The framework of the San Francisco Contemporary Music Players is unlike almost any other ensemble of its kind – a performance group dedicated wholly to the presentation of contemporary music, employing exclusively local AFM Union musicians, and creating concerts that straddle the bounds between solo performances, chamber music, and large ensemble works that utilize the full resources of its stellar roster of instrumentalists. Through the combination of impeccable skill and flexibility of configuration, the Contemporary Players offers composers and audiences alike a kaleidoscopic and varied field for immersion in the moment, and the members of its roster today can speak to that variety.
