Palaver Strings - Voice in the Crowd

Saturday, Aug 18, 2018, 5:30pm

Pascal Hall, Rockport

Palaver Strings

The truly personal voice of composer Ian Gottlieb expands the boundaries of the string orchestra medium, interweaving unity and individuality in a multitudinous fabric of solo lines. His concerto grosso, Even, written for Palaver Strings, alongside the tender Mother and Child by STILL and the exuberant Sinfonia No. 2 by a 12-year old Mendelssohn, explore the relationships between the individual and the group, the self and the other. From moments of unity, peace, tenderness, and joy, to those of tension, chaos, and conflict, this concert explores our need to be heard, and our struggle to balance that in the cacophonous world in which we live.
