Sea of Tonality

Presented by Intersection at Musicians Hall of Fame and Museum, Nashville TN

Oct 29 2015
Sea of Tonality

As we explore the sonic relationships and interactivity thriving within contemporary compositions, Intersection’s second season debut continues the search through works focused on tonality, melody and diverse instrumentation. The bill, titled Sea of Tonality, is based on Toru Takemitsu’s Rain Coming, for Chamber Orchestra and his perception of tonality as a fluid element, constantly shifting and taking new forms. The performance will also feature works by Tina Tallon, Joby Talbot and Elliott Carter, whose Mosaic, is a highly demanding work composed later in his career and features harpist Kirsten Agresta Copely.

But the evening’s highlight is its final piece: Julia Wolfe’s True Love, featuring Julia Wolfe! As the recent recipient of the 2015 Pulitzer Prize for Music, Wolfe has been a consistent and prolific voice for contemporary classical music throughout her career. And as her only work composed for a soloist and large ensemble, Intersection will perform True Love, with local accordionist Jeff Lisenby. This performance will provide patrons an intimate window into Wolfe’s creative process, so join us for this remarkable opportunity to experience an evening of contemporary conversation.
