AMP commissions string quartet from Amy Wurtz

Amy Wurtz

The American Music Project has commissioned a second chamber work from Chicago-based composer Amy Wurtz.

Wurtz’s String Quartet No. 3 will be given its world premiere in Chicago in the 2019-20 season by a leading chamber ensemble. Details will be announced at a later date.

This commission follows Wurtz’s Piano Quintet, AMP’s first commission, which the pianist-composer premiered with Chicago Q Ensemble in 2014 under AMP auspices.

Wurtz’s first two string quartets have been recorded by Chicago Q Ensemble and CDs are available at her website.
