Perspectives Ensemble was founded at Columbia University in 1993 by Sato Moughalian to explore and contextualise works of composers and visual artists in performances, recordings, and writings. Under Moughalian’s artistic direction the group has received the highest critical accolades, including praise from The New York Times. The ensemble serves as artist-in-residence for the Foundation for Iberian Music and the Graduate Center, The City University of New York.
Perspectives Ensemble has performed in the Morgan Library, the Stern Auditorium of Carnegie Hall, the 92nd Street Y, Lincoln Center, the Guggenheim Museum and the Rubin Museum of Art in New York, and has served as a resident ensemble for the Miller Theatre’s groundbreaking Pocket Concerto Project, Composer Portraits and Bach series.
The ensemble has recorded for Sony Classical and American Modern Recordings, and recorded its first release for Naxos in 2012 [8.573101], which featured the music of Xavier Montsalvatge, with soloists Timothy Fain, violin and Sasha Cooke, mezzo-soprano.
