A Close Correspondence
Caroline H. Hume Concert Hall, San Francisco Conservatory of Music
San Francisco, CA
Share this event:

Its a natural alliance: Volti (Robert Geary, Artistic Director) joins forces with the Left Coast Chamber Ensemble (Anna Presler, Artistic Director) - instrumentalists renowned for finding provocative and beguiling ways of pairing standard repertoire with new music - for a concert about correspondence. Left Coast will play Leo Janácek's "Intimate Letters" string quartet and Volti will sing "A Fathers Love," the movement from David Lang's "battle hymns" based on a beautiful goodbye letter from civil war soldier Sullivan Ballou. Together our ensembles present world premieres for string quartet + chamber chorus from Onur Türkmen  (text from a letter of Goethe) and Mark Winges (text from letters of Abelard and Héloïse, Janácek, and Virginia Woolf.)

A letter is meant to be read, connecting the reader with writer. These works, inspired by the dying art of letter writing, are meant to be heard.
