About This Event
About Composers in Focus: CMS welcomes Zosha Di Castri, Jessie Montgomery, Tania León and Joan Tower and offers audiences a rare opportunity to sit in on intimate conversations between composers and musicians who know each other’s work, and in some cases have known each other for decades. The webinar-style presentations will include live, real-time conversations with composers as well as pre-recorded performances of their music.
Composer and pianist Zosha Di Castri talks with pianist Orion Weiss and violinist Kristin Lee about motivation, influences, inspiration and her work Sprung Testament, commissioned by Jennifer Koh as a sister piece to Beethoven’s Spring Sonata. The piece is inspired by Beethoven’s desperate but determined Heiligenstadt Testament and Rose-Lynn Fisher’s book of photography, The Topography of Tears.
