Modern Notebook for October 23, 2022
The space between movement and stillness is the focal point of Andrew Tholl’s work for violin and viola, hold still while the world turns.” It is music that asks the question: “who could hold still?” And, “what could hold still?”
Join Tyler Kline for the next Modern Notebook to hear that, as well as a work titled “water hollows stone” by Alex Weiser which is inspired by an ancient Latin proverb that reads “A drop of water hollows a stone - not by force, but by continuously dripping.” And throughout the work, the music features textures which emulate the movement of water.
Also featuring music by Tamar-kali, Nathalie Joachim, Shelley Washington, Dobrinka Tabakova, Niki Harlafti, and others; and performances by Aperture Duo, Hocket, PUBLIQuartet, pianist Andrew Matthews-Owen, ~Nois saxophone quartet, and others.
Tune in Sunday night from 8 to 10 ET on Classical WSMR 89.1 and 103.9. Streaming at wsmr.org.
