Sunny Knable Keeping Faythe
Faythe Vollrath, hailed by the Wall Street Journal for her “subtly varied tempo and rhythm that sounds like breathing,” proposes an exciting concert of new repertoire for solo harpsichord. Viewed primarily as a Baroque instrument, the harpsichord also occupies an important niche in compositions of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Whether invoking rain in works by Toru Takemitsu, exotic sounds in Lou Harrison’s Sonata for Harpsichord, or wild dancing in a piece by Sunny Knable, this is an experience you won’t want to miss!
