THE SILVERSTEIN-WALDEN DUO - Con-ti-nuo: November 23rd

This interactive program, presented by the Silverstein-Walden Duo in collaboration with Colburn Conservatory students, Madeleine Vaillancourt and Vardan Gasparyan, explores themes of innovation and interconnectivity between people, places, eras and disciplines. Con-tì-nuo features music by five Italian composers, from both the seventeenth and twentieth centuries, who travel[ed] throughout Europe and beyond, and whose influence – even during the seventeenth century – extended as far as China. These composers drew from a variety of influences in the visual arts, from other musicians with whom they had contact, and in music from previous eras, to break boundaries of technique and expression, and to explore new sounds. The title of the program, “Continuo” not only illustrates the continuous spirit of experimentation and emotional range that transcends the 350 years separating the old and new music presented here, but it also refers to basso continuo, the improvisation over a bass line that will be played on the harpsichord when accompanying the rest of the band.
