Left Coast Chamber Ensemble 4: Audible Visions
Audible Visions
Musicians, focused on sound, are sometimes oblivious to the visual world, but there is the occasional composer who has sight nearly as acute as his or her hearing. Barbara Kolb's work for guitar and violin depicts an artist's palette, complete with cerulean blue; William Grant Still wrote a suite in which each movement was suggested by a different sculpture: "African Dancer," "Mother and Child," and so on. Gabriel Faure was one of the so-called "impressionist composers"  who preferred that a simplistic link not be made between his music and the art of his time; nonetheless, it is a real pleasure to hear his colorful piano quartet in the context of other works that were, in fact, literally motivated by color. The Finnish composer Saariaho creates sonic images of seven aspects of butterflies, while Matthew Barnson exploits an unusual sound palette in his abstract work for string quartet.  Left Coast celebrates the connection between eye and ear.
