Unfiltered Music Festival

Three nights of intimate concerts by musicians raising the bar in Contemporary Classical

About the Event

Over three evenings in March 2022, Fotografiska New York will host the inaugural Unfiltered Music Festival, featuring some of the city’s most vital and accomplished musical voices, inviting the audience to experience the ephemeral qualities of thrilling music.

The music performed defies genre in a perfect celebration of New York City’s diverse musical landscape. The program has been curated to complement the photography on view in the museum’s enchanting Loft space, and to enhance the energy generated when people gather together for a shared cultural experience.

3/16/22 Unfiltered Music Festival | Night I
The Overlook, string quartet with Anthony McGill, clarinet Monica Davis & Ravenna Lipchik, violin Angela Pickett, viola Laura Metcalf, cello

The “paradigm-shifting” (New York Music Daily) string quartet, The Overlook, is joined by New York Philharmonic principal clarinetist Anthony McGill for a performance of Samuel Coleridge-Talor’s lush, romantic quintet for clarinet and strings, written when the composer was just 19. The quartet will also highlight the work of some of the most innovative composers of contemporary music, journeying from the celestial with Carlos Simon’s “Warmth from Other Suns”, to the solid earth beneath us with Shelley Washington’s “Middleground.”

3/17/22 Unfiltered Music Festival | Night II
Caroline Shaw & Andrew Yee, violin, cello, vocals, composition

An evening of original work by the multi-instrumentalists and composing duo, Caroline Shaw and Andrew Yee. Shaw is a Pulitzer-Prize winning composer and new music superstar. Andrew Yee is cellist of the Attacca Quartet, which won its first GRAMMY for the album Orange, with music by Shaw.

3/18/22 Unfiltered Music Festival | Night III
Brandee Younger (harp), Courtney Bryan (piano), Jay Gandhi (bansuri flute), Sameer Gupta (tabla/drums), and Dezron Douglas (bass)

The legacy of pianist, harpist, singer, composer and spiritual leader Turiya Alice Coltrane (1937-2007) provides infinite inspiration to the  musicians of Brooklyn Raga Massive, a collective of artists whose work intersects with South Asian traditions. This musical tribute to the iconic pioneer of the cosmic jazz movement will breathe new life into the work of Coltrane with enchanting sojourns into her classic albums, including Journey in Satchidananda, Turiya Sings, and more.
