Kicking off a banner season in 2022-23, Inbal Segev releases the fourth and last volume of her “20 for 2020” commissioning project on October 7, comprising world premiere works by Oscar Bettison, Camille El Bacha, Stewart Goodyear, Molly Joyce, and Immanuel Wilkins. All four volumes of the project, plus a bonus track by Segev herself, will be released as a physical 2-CD set on Avie Records on November 11. The cellist performs live this season in concerts around the world celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Taki Alsop Conducting Fellowship, each anchored by Anna Clyne’s DANCE, a cello concerto commissioned by Segev and recorded in 2020. She opens the Charlotte Symphony season, performing the Elgar concerto with conductor Andrew Grams; performs multiple concerts with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, on tour in Bogotá, Colombia and at home in New York; and gives the world premiere performances of Vijay Iyer’s Human Archipelago with the London Philharmonic Orchestra led by Edward Gardner, before performing the work with the co-commissioning Oregon Symphony and Boise Philharmonic. Segev is also pleased to announce her new partnership with Arabella Arts, which will now serve as her worldwide representation.

Long known as an established driving force in the creation of new cello repertoire for the 21st century and galvanized by the unprecedented worldwide crises that characterized 2020, Segev launched her “20 for 2020” commissioning project in the fall of that year, hoping to capture something of that collective experience and encourage creative recovery from it.
