Knox Trio: Flute, cello, and piano
2019 Wed Jan 9th 8:30pm – 10:00pm
Knox Trio, an emerging flute, cello, and piano trio dedicated to contemporary music, presents Footprints, an immersive, interdisciplinary concert program exploring sonic representations of the natural world from 1971 to the present. From George Crumb’s seminal trio Vox Balaenae (Voice of the Whale) to Matthew Burtner’s atmospheric Snowprints (2001) to three 2018 world premieres (Iris Sidikman, Victoria Romano, Ernest Ling), Footprints examines changing conceptions of humans’ precarious place within the environment, and the role of music in shaping these perspectives. About 70 minutes in length, the concert will feature five musical works interspersed with thoughtfully-curated video clips, sound clips, and theatrical elements designed to heighten a sense of “narrative synesthesia”. With Footprints, Knox Trio aims to highlight paradoxes between the often lush, sublime beauty of environmental music and the harsh realities of environmental abuse and impending climate change.
Knox Trio is:
Joshua A. Weinberg, flutes/harp/composition
Bri Tagliaferro, cello
Daniel Schreiner, piano/visual art
