Tower: A Newborn in La Jolla
1st June 2007
Tower is no stranger to the La Jolla Music Society in 2000, SummerFest commissioned her earlier trio, Big Sky. This year, she returns as composer-in-residence. "Trio La Jolla," Tower explains, "was written for my friend Jimmy Lin violinist extraordinaire...It is a work that tries to negotiate different paths of emotional extremes going from soft tender lyricism to more aggressive rhythmic patterns of wild dances. I am very much looking forward to working with Jimmy, André, and Gary on this newborn."
Co-commissioned with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center and the Virginia Arts Festival, Trio La Jolla features Lin joining pianist André-Michel Schub and cellist Gary Hoffman for the performance.Trio La Jolla 18'
