Escape Velocity

December 9, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

escapeVelocity presents a recital of rarely-heard masterworks for violin and piano. The program exists between two poles: Charles Wuorinen’s brutally beautiful Sonata for Violin and Piano and Olga Neuwirth’s celestially virtuosic “Quasare/Pulsare.” These pieces are contrasted with—and illuminated by—Judith Weir’s elegant and humorous “Music for 247 Strings” and Jessica Mays’s compactly lush “Duo.” Exploring symmetry, reflections, and the balance between opposing forces, Theo Chandler’s new work for escapeVelocity itself holds the program in balance.


Judith Weir: Music for 247 Strings (9’)
Theo Chandler: Reflected Arcs (11’)
Olga Neuwirth: Quasare/Pulsare (10’)
Jessica Mays: Duo (5’)
Charles Wuorinen: Sonata for Violin and Piano (22’)

$10-$20 suggested donation. Please also bring food or wine to share.
