On Feb. 3, 2012, violinist Miranda Cuckson and pianist Blair McMillen gave the world premiere performance of Harold Meltzer's Kreisleriana from the Coolidge Auditorium at the Library of Congress. 

Harold Meltzer is an American composer and founder of the Sequitur new-music ensemble. In 2009, he was a Pulitzer Prize finalist for his work Brion for chamber ensemble. Meltzer has been awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship and a residency at the American Academy in Rome. 

This on-demand music is part of a new partnership between Q2 Music and Concerts from the Library of Congress to share works that the Library of Congress either commissioned or presented as world or US premieres dating back to the 2009-2010 season.
