TUTTI FESTIVAL

I was very grateful to be invited and to attend Tutti Festival in early March 2020, just before Covid-19 hit. The festival marked my Mid-West debut and my first time working with New York based string quartet ETHEL. The festival took place over 4 days in Granville, Ohio. (Thank you Ching-chu Hu!)

Recording coming soon.

PROGRAM NOTES

‘Affine,’ taken from the Italian meaning ‘Kindred’ or ‘Connected With’, from the word ‘affinity’. This work is an exploration of the connection we share to others, particularly in their absence, be it geographical, temporal, or even trans-dimensional (i.e., those who have passed). I was inspired to write this following a reunion with family and friends after a long time away, and the profound sensation that when it came time to leave them again, they were still with me, that I carry them with me, that we are connected.  Even then, when the pandemic began and we became separated indefinitely, that connection remained and was a source of light and strength, even if at times it became one of sorrow as well.
