    MORTON FELDMAN: TRIO

    Bowerbird

    Where:
    3637 Chestnut St, Philadelphia, PA 19104
    When:
    • Thursday June 13th 2019, 8:00pm to 10:00pm

    Continuing an already ten year commitment to exploring the music of Morton Feldman, Bowerbird is pleased to present his landmark work Trio (for piano, violin, and cello), performed by NYC based ensemble Longleash. Originally premiered in 1980, Trio is one of Feldman’s earliest extended duration works (predated by only his String Quartet No. 1).

     

    And though epic in duration (approximately 1 hour 40 mins), the work is threaded together with an intricate patchwork of quiet blocks of sound, pointillistic colors, and wispy melodies that stretch the listener’s musical memory and perception of time. The performance includes work by lighting designer and artist Julie Zhu.

    Bowerbird’s Steinway Model O piano was donated in honor of Virginia Francis Lease.
