About this Event

Dive into three new viola sonatas by Andrew Norman, Anna Thorvaldsdottir and Scott Wollschleger and find your way among fragments, fragile echoes and broken gestures.

Performed by internationally renowned violist Anne Leilehua Lanzilotti and pianist Zeynep Ozsuca. Audio-visual preludes by Ana Quiroga and Pedro Maia mark the walls.

Anne Leilehua Lanzilotti is a "leading composer-performer" (The New York Times) dedicated to the music of our time. She was recently appointed Curator of Music at The Curtis R. Priem Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center (EMPAC) at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.

Lanzilotti has performed with contemporary music ensembles such as A Far Cry, Alarm Will Sound, International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE), Ensemble Échappé, and Ensemble Signal. As a recording artist, she has played on albums from Björk's Vulnicura Live and Joan Osborne's Love and Hate, to Dai Fujikura's Chance Monsoon and Ted Hearne's The Source. Lanzilotti’s current commissioning initiative, The 20/19 Project, includes new works by Anna Thorvaldsdottir, Andrew Norman, and Scott Wollschleger.

As a composer, Lanzilotti is interested in translating sounds from everyday life onto traditional instruments using nontraditional playing methods. Her compositions often deal with unique instrument-objects, such as her commissions from The Noguchi Museum involving sound sculptures or the Akari Light Sculpture installation, and collaborations with Nina C. Young and Senem Pirler. Lanzilotti has been featured as a composer-performer on Tulsa Living Arts OK Electric Festival, the Dots+Loops series and Sound School series in Australia, and a guest composer at Thailand International Composers Festival.
