MATTHEW AUCOIN: Violin Sonata: Its Own Accord

All music was “new music” once; plenty of now-familiar pieces once seemed startling and strange (and if we listen deeply, they can still sound startling and strange!). This chamber concert brings together four pieces written across nearly 250 years: first, one of Haydn’s early string quartets, through which he breathed new life into string quartet form; next, Schoenberg’s passionate early work Transfigured Night; John Adams’s jubilant Shaker Loops, a piece that gathers the joyous energy of Minimalism into an ecstatic dance; and finally, the meditative Its Own Accord, composed just last year by "Hearing the Future" festival curator and MacArthur "Genius" Grant winner Matthew Aucoin.
