Possessing a knack for adventurous yet accessible programming, enhakē (in-HA-kee) has consistently distinguished itself with performances of startling intensity. Drawing its name from the Seminole (Creek) word for sound or call, enhakē has been praised for its “playing of the very highest caliber” (Fanfare) and “keen instinct for exciting programmes” (BBC Music Magazine). Their 2010 Carnegie Hall recital Made in America was lauded for its "rock solid rhythmic integrity...strengths in balance, intonation, and musicality” and described as a “polished, yet spontaneous performance" (The New York Concert Review). enhakē’s latest CD Prepárense: The Piazzolla Project has been described as “positively delightful…[t]he sense of ensemble is near-miraculous” (Fanfare).
Their distinctive instrumentation (Wonkak Kim, clarinet; M. Brent Williams, violin; Katherine Decker, cello; Eun-Hee Park, piano) allows enhakē the flexibility to perform repertoire from the Baroque, Classical, and Romantic eras in addition to the most captivating contemporary masterworks. On their Santa Fe debut they’ll perform works by John Mackey, David Biedenbender, Libby Larsen, Peter Lieuwen and Astor Piazzolla.
