“Echoes of the Divine” for piano quartet will be performed by the Sonic Liberation Players in Somerville, Massachusetts on May 10.
From Sonic Liberation Players’ website:
Sonic Liberation Players finish their third season with an eclectic program. The first half of the concert are pieces by composers who entered SLP’s Call for Scores last season. Two pieces about women and their ongoing struggles–one, “Die Elbe”, about a woman in a traditional Hungarian family struggling to find her voice, and the other,”Flay”, about a woman in ancient Greece who was murdered by a mob due to her intelligence and political influence–are particularly relevant in the light of the #metoo movement. We will also be performing Boston composer Tianyi Wang’s “Dark Blessing” and New York composer Gilbert Galindo’s “Echoes of the Divine”.
The second half of the concert is Feldman’s stunning and haunting half-hour piece “Why Patterns?” for flute(s), glockenspiel, and piano. Inspired by his interest in the patterns found in rugs, he treats the three instruments as individual colors, each written very precisely, but with a degree of imprecision that occurs when they are presented simultaneously. The result is an always-undulating texture in which the ear is drawn back and forth between the individual lines and the resultant weave.
