Bozzini Quartet with Sarah-Jane Summers & Monty Adkins

September 29, 2016 in by mwhiteside

Event Details

Monty Adkins’ Water’s Edge (world première) is based on techniques and tunes from the hardanger fiddle tradition of the west coast of Norway. In addition, particularly influential on the work is the sound of the hardanger fiddle itself, with its emphasis on double-stopping, drones and the resonance of the sympathetic understrings. These qualities will be expanded across the whole string ensemble and electronics creating the sound on stage of a meta-fiddle.Artists:
