- The New York Times
Perspectives Ensemble was founded by its Artistic Director Sato Moughalian in 1993 as the resident ensemble for the series Perspectives in Music and Art at Columbia University. The ensemble has presented thematic concerts as well as programs on subjects that bridge the visual, musical, and literary arts, consistently receiving the highest critical accolades. Perspectives Ensemble collaborates with some of the most dynamic and visionary conductors today, including Angel Gil-Ordoñez, Paul Haas, Rob Kapilow, Roger Nierenberg, in concerts and recordings that feature the works of living composers and historic figures, shedding new light on their work through explorations of their music in the context of their time and place. Perspectives Ensemble has been presented in Carnegie Hall, the Guggenheim Museum, Miller Theatre, the 92nd Street Y, Lincoln Center, Columbia and New York Universities, the Ethical Culture Society, and has recorded for Sony Classics, Newport Classics and New World Records, among others. The group served as a resident ensemble for the Miller Theatre’s groundbreaking Pocket Concerto Project.

Perspectives Ensemble’s acclaimed performances reflect Artistic Director Sato Moughalian’s finely-detailed approach to the rehearsal process and the company’s commitment to creating circumstances under which both performers and staff can contribute to serving music at their highest levels of accomplishment.
