Two Sides Sounding presents innovative contemporary song programs with roots in the classical salon tradition, creating “a lush garden of musical abundance.”* Founded in 2005 by soprano Eleanor Taylor and pianist Jocelyn Dueck, the ensemble features outstanding artists performing the music of living composers. TSS has been presented by Nautilus Music Theater, The Schubert Club, The Phoenix Concerts, Brooklyn New Music Collective and Friends and Enemies of New Music. The group has appeared in New York City at VIM: Tribeca, South Oxford Space, Tenri Cultural Institute, Greenwich House Music School, Saint Peter’s Church, the NY Public Library, Cornelia Street Café, Caffe Vivaldi and Marion’s Lounge.
Two Sides Sounding has premiered works by Eve Beglarian, Corey Dargel, Louis Durey, Edward Ficklin, Christopher Gable, Edie Hill, Gilda Lyons, Eric Moe, Rachel Peters, Kala Pierson, Sam Piperato, Michael Rose, Daniel Sonenberg and Aleksandra Vrebalov. Eleanor Taylor and Jocelyn Dueck’s premiere of Corey Dargel’s Con Dolcezza (with Sweetness) received special mention in New Yorker music critic Alex Ross’ blog The Rest is Noise: “Caught the first part of the Two Sides Sounding recital at St. Peter's… Corey Dargel's Condoleezza Rice song cycle — setting three passages from the Secretary of State's speeches — sounded prankish in concept, but was surprisingly moving in execution…I recommend these songs to sopranos of daring.” MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow tweeted about the cycle as “high art based on politicians’ transcribed remarks” and included a link to the group’s recording.
