MCME, or Moscow Contemporary Music Ensemble, is an independent professional ensemble of the best Russian musicians specializing in modern music.
The title of the ensemble’s Festival concert — Tria ex uno — is the name of an experimental sextet for flute, clarinet, piano, percussion, violin, and cello by the Austrian composer Georg Friedrich Haas. This piece was inspired by Agnus Dei II from a mass Missa L’homme armé super voces musicales by Josquin des Prez, a French composer of the late 15th — early 16th century, with whom Haas enters into a dialog. The Austrian composer has turned to his predecessors’ legacy before: he has quoted Mozart, Beethoven, Mendelsohn, and Schreker, weaving themes from their works into his own style which is based mainly on microtones and flexible composition.
