Ear Heart Music Presents: Trio Kavak
Trio Kavak, "The Singing Garden Grew"
Presented by Ear Heart Music as part of the Composers Now Festival

Trio KAVAK explores the contemporary repertoire and new sound possibilities for the highly evocative combination of flute, viola and harp. The trio is Amelia Lukas (flute), Victor Lowrie (viola) and Kathryn Andrews (harp). This program features works loosely related to the theme of contemplation and refinement.

Kaija Saariaho, New Gates,
Sasha Siem, White Dictionary
Claude Debussy, Trio Sonata
Sofia Gubaidulina, Garden of Joy and Sorrow
Victor Lowrie, Untitled

Saariaho's sensuous New Gates is based on a ballet with no story line. The thematic material evokes the passing from one state to another through mythological symbolism. The music moves towards and through gates, showing us new landscapes, and then continues on towards new gates.

Sasha Siem's White Dictionary for flute, viola, harp and voice receives its US Premiere with the composer as vocalist. This smart and quirky collection of imaginary dictionary entries traces the evolution of a turbulent love affair. The dictionary format is used in a desperate attempt to impose order and clarity where there is none.

Gubidulina conceived her gorgeous Garden of Joy and Sorrow under the strong influence of two directly contradictory literary phenomena, in which vivid Eastern color was counterposed to a typically Western consciousness.

Victor Lowrie's Untitled is a simple and beautiful piece, emerging from nothing and fading to nothing, which draws its material from one repeating pattern and musical gesture.

Rounding out the program is Debussy's hauntingly beautiful Trio Sonata. A seminal work written at the end of his life, the Trio Sonata is a perfect manifestation of the master's late style and arguably his best composition.

Composers Saariaho, Lowrie, and Siem will be in attendance and may engage in a brief chat about their pieces during intermission.
