Sound Energy and Emily Thorner at New Music Gathering: Boston

  • Boston Conservatory 4099 Fenway Boston, MA United States (map)

Sound Energy String Trio unites with coloratura soprano Emily Thorner in a joint production of Betsy Jolas's rarely heard "Quatuor II". 

This vivid work explores soundworlds ranging from the extremely delicate, to vigorously agitated, to profoundly lyrical. While the soprano is given no text, the use of different phonemes punctuate the work as she weaves between the varied texture created with the string trio.  The quartet is considered Jolas's major work, and the rare performance of it is one not to miss.
