Sept 11 to 13 – Concert: Invisible Threads with Francesca Anderegg

Violinist Francesca Anderegg joins us virtually “at” WCCMA’s home Union Episcopal Church through the magic of technology. At a time when the challenge of isolation is deeply felt in daily life, music helps us weave “invisible threads” of connection among composers, artists and audiences. For this program, Francesca will weave together music by contemporary and Baroque composers, each one representing a personal vision and unique subject. Gillian Whitehead’s music draws upon the natural landscapes of her native New Zealand, and Bright Silence depicts the “sounds, silences, and ghosts” of the rocky plateau of Central Otago. Missy Mazzoli’s work Dissolve, O My Heart, is a direct, personal response to the enduring power of Bach’s Chaconne. Like all modern solo violin music, the technical demands and musical textures of these pieces pay homage to Bach’s Sonatas and Partitas for Solo Violin. The program concludes with Bach’s majestic Partita No. 2 in D minor, with Mazzoli’s work connecting the contemporary and the Baroque.

Francesca Anderegg will join us after the performance on zoom for a post concert chat at 9PM.
