Yarn/Wire isn't your typical quartet of classical musicians. Comprised of pianists Laura Barger and Ning Yu and percussionists Ian Antonio and Russell Greenberg, the chamber ensemble — now in its 10th anniversary season — has been a leading proponent of new compositions by living artists. Yarn/Wire's upcoming performance at Eastman School of Music, as part of the Kilbourn Concert Series, is no exception: audience members will hear the world premiere of a work by Eastman composition professor Ricardo Zohn-Muldoon. The variety of timbres heard and sound worlds revealed in a Yarn/Wire performance is stunning, and the players' intensity and commitment to musical exploration is palpable.

Yarn/Wire performs on Tuesday, January 26, in Kilbourn Hall, Eastman School of Music, 26 Gibbs Street. 8 p.m. $20-$30.;
