Modern Notebook for March 19, 2023
Coming up on the next Modern Notebook with Tyler Kline: Composer Asha Srinivasan says the piano is an extremely adept instrument when it comes to changing moods suddenly: in one moment, it can be dominating and terrifying, and in the next, delicate and docile.Tune in for her work “Mercurial Reveries” which explores these contrasts against a backdrop of a traditional Indian music pitch language and Bartok inspirations.
Plus, “The Moons Symphony” by Amanda Lee Falkenberg is music inspired by the beauty and majesty of the moons in our solar system. It’s also music that quite literally merges music and science, composed in collaboration with scientists from NASA, ESA, and others.
Featuring music by Clarice Jensen, Angélica Negrón, Meera Gudipati, Cassie Wieland, Nicky Sohn, Danielle Eva Schwob, and others; and performances by violinist Mari Samuelsen, cellist Inbal Segev, English horn soloist Jacqueline Leclair; flutist Nathalie Joachim and vibraphonist Simon Boyar, and more.
