On June 17, the ACFNY will host a concert with the Momenta Quartet performing works by Austrian composer Johanna Doderer. Alongside more than forty world premieres featuring both established and up-coming composers, the Momenta Quartet’s repertoire includes standards by masters like Mozart, Haydn, and Beethoven, consort music of the Renaissance, and 20th-century music.

Johanna Doderer was born in Bregenz, Austria. She studied composition in Graz and Vienna, where she additionally specialized in film and media composition. Her current work ranges from chamber music to orchestral music and opera. In the immediate future, Johanna Doderer intends to concentrate on opera. Frequent collaborations with numerous musicians from all over the world play an important role in her career. She is working on her fourth opera, A Kind Of Yellow, which tells the story of the life of Ira Hayes. Hayes was an American Indian who went to war against Japan, fighting side by side with the Americans.
