HereNowHear consists of pianists Ryan MacEvoy McCullough and Andrew Zhou, who first met at Tanglewood and subsequently at Cornell University. Compelling and dedicated performers of new works, the ensemble regards itself as a laboratory for compositional experimentation. Its core mission is to reinvigorate the repertoire for two pianists through commissioning and educational projects involving close, committed collaborations with composers, using traditional instruments to activate new sonic paradigms.

The current work-in-progress in our commissioning initiative is by Christopher Stark.

HearNowHear gets its the name from Chap. 1, iv. of Joyce’s Finnegans Wake.
