Composer Anna Clyne.

On the next Modern Notebook: Beethoven’s Kreutzer Sonata was the inspiration for Leo Tolstoy’s novella of the same name, in which Tolstoy writes “Music is the shorthand of emotion.” Fast forward to the year 2020, when composer Anna Clyne wrote her work Shorthand, which is also inspired by Beethoven’s Sonata.

Then, the legendary “Real Book” - an expansive anthology of Jazz standards that musicians have used since the 1970s - is the inspiration for Anthony Cheung’s piece for flute and string quartet “The Real Book of Fake Tunes.” Across the five movements of Cheung’s work, he adapts character traits from various genres and styles, including a John Coltrane-esque chord progression.

Plus, works by Cassie Wieland, Zhou Long, Shruthi Rajasekar, Allison Loggins-Hull, Juan de Dios Magdaleno, and others; and performances by clarinetist Andy Hudson, harpist Yolanda Kondonassis, flutist Jennifer Grim, Longleash, and more.
