Ms. Resmini’s repertoire ranges from the Baroque to the current day, from orchestral works and concertos to music for flute alone, and encompasses the avant-garde, electronics, and interdisciplinary projects. A review of her performance at the 2016 New Music Gathering raved, “Emma Resmini stunned the crowd.” (I Care If You Listen) In addition, her performance of Stockhausen’s cycle KLANG was praised for its “buoyant cognitive comprehension.” (David Patrick Stearns, Condemned to Music) At the Curtis Institute of Music she was a featured soloist in the tribute concert to composer Kaija Saariaho, and as a member of the Curtis 20/21 Ensemble gave performances of Arnold Schoenberg’s famed Pierrot Lunaire in New York City, Philadelphia, and Washington, DC.
