LineaMusic on the Edge and the Andy Warhol Museum are excited to present Ensemble Linea in residency in Pittsburgh this April. One of the top new music ensembles in France, Linea will perform an adventurous program at the Andy Warhol Museum on Saturday April 2nd at 8 p.m. featuring works by Raphael Cendo, Aurelien Dumont, Valerio Sannicandro, Marco Momi, Pascal Dusapin, and Frederic Duriuex. Continuing their residency later that week, Linea will perform a free program of Pitt graduate student compositions at Bellefield Hall Auditorium on Monday April 4th, 8 p.m.

Founded in Strasbourg by pianist and conductor Jean-Philippe Wurtz in 1998, Ensemble Linea has, since its beginnings, been committed to promoting a democratization of contemporary music, giving priority to the encounter with the audience and openness towards other artistic disciplines. 
Beyond any schools and trends, the artistic project of Linea covers quite diverse aesthetic perspective, from musical theater to electronic music, from Western music to the rich Asian and American repertoires. Based in Alsace (eastern France, bordering on Germany and Switzerland), at the crossroads of many different cultures, Linea naturally approaches the repertoires in their multicultural dimension. Linea advocates an engaged music anchored in modernity: it favors works that question the mutations and complexities of our era.

Tickets are available through the University of Pittsburgh Stages Box Office, by calling 412-624-7529, or visiting music.pitt.edu/tickets. Tickets in advance: general admission is $15; students and seniors are $10. At the door: general admission is $20; non-Pitt students and seniors are $15. (No free student tickets at the Warhol.)
