Founded in 2001 by pianist Idith Meshulam, Ensemble Pi is a new music ensemble dedicated to performing the music of living composers, undiscovered composers of the past, and masterpieces of chamber music. Through innovative programming and collaborations with visual artists, writers and dancers, Ensemble Pi bridges the gap between new music and new audiences while engaging with political and social issues.

Keep Going is Ensemble Pi’s tribute to Elias Tanenbaum. Although admired by a group of dedicated followers during his lifetime, he has never received the widespread recognition he deserves. With this selection of solo and chamber works, Ensemble Pi brings Tanenbaum’s beautiful and thought-provoking music to a wider audience in the hope of inspiring many more performances and recordings of the work of this truly great American composer.

KEEP GOING: THE MUSIC OF ELIAS TANENBAUM features the chamber and solo works of the late Elias Tanenbaum performed by Ensemble Pi. The pieces demonstrate Tanenbaum's ability to turn his emotional reactions to world events into music that illustrates both the life-changing grief and need for change that those events cause. As Tanenbaum himself said, "What is there left in any of us but to keep going?" Ensemble Pi is a new music ensemble dedicated to performing the music of both living composers and undiscovered composers of the past. Keep Going is the ensemble's tribute to Tanenbaum, whose beautiful and thought-provoking music has never received the widespread recognition it deserves.
