Interwoven ensemble performs in Saranac Sunday
SARANAC — New York-based intercultural ensemble Interwoven will perform at the Saranac Methodist Church this Sunday at 3 p.m.
Interwoven celebrates and integrates traditional Asian and western classical music through performing, commissioning and recording contemporary works. Exploring time-honored soundscapes of Asia and Europe, the ensemble weaves together musical and artistic threads from diverse origins and traditions and intertwines unique Asian perspectives and aesthetics to create holistic, innovative works and music experiences that encourage inclusion and harmony between various American communities.
Interwoven made its debut in October 2021 at the DiMenna Center for Classical Music in New York City.
The group’s program on Sunday includes folk songs and historic compositions from Asia as well as contemporary works that interlace the sounds of east and west. Works include Thomas Osborne’s “Tumbling from the Ninth Height of Heaven” for koto, violin, and cello; Yang Yong’s “River Songs” for erhu and cello; Liu Tianhua and Chen Yaoxin’s “Wildlife Suite” for erhu, violin, viola, and cello; Theodore Wiprud’s “Mudang” for Piri and String Quartet; and Daron Hagen’s “Genji” for koto and string quartet.
