Alba Music Festival (May 2020)

Piamont, Italy

An annual summer festival in the Piamont region of Italy bringing together artists internationally. I was commissioned to write a new work for the Borromeo String Quartet, though due to COVID-19, the festival was switched to an online format. Instead, I participated online and was featured as part of a livestream series, where I presented a recording of a prior quartet and took part in an interview.

Alba 2020 Virtual Music Festival

The ALBA festival was due to proceed in person in Italy in late May this year, though due to COVID-19, plans the festival shifted online. I was glad to participate virtually by way of a seminar chaired by Prof. Elliott McKinley. The seminar was streamed directly from the ALBA website during the festival, though a record was uploaded to YouTube some days later which can be found below.
