Classical Music in NYC This Week

INTERNATIONAL CONTEMPORARY ENSEMBLE at the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts (Jan. 19, 6 p.m.). In a free, interactive presentation featuring conversation with the audience, ICE will perform two works by Ashley Fure, one of the most imaginative and thoughtful young composers around. On the bill for the performance are “Therefore, I Was,” for piano, cello and percussion, and the full version of a new solo percussion piece, “Shiver Lung 2.”

SERIAL COPLAND at Le Poisson Rouge (Jan. 19, 7 p.m.). If Copland appears on concert programs at all, it’s the more lyrical Copland of the ballets and symphonies. Not here. The JACK Quartet and the pianist Adam Tendler devote an evening to Copland’s atonality, through the Piano Variations of 1930, the Piano Quartet of 1950 and the Piano Fantasy of 1955-57.
