Elemental – Dirt and Sky | Corrine Byrne and Andy Kozar Duo Recital
Tuesday • January 21, 2020 | 7:30 pm 8:30 pm
This performance by Byrne and Kozar, respective chairs of Longy’s vocal studies and brass departments, features music that explores the concept of opposing forces in inventive and ingenious ways. The exploration of the earthly and divine heard in the music of Hildegard von Bingen, the oppositions inherent in war through Rob Deemer’s “Thalia Fields” with text by an Iraq War veteran, the “clean” or “dirty” possibilities of tonality in Scott Wollschleger’s “Bring Something Incomprehensible Into This World,” and our views of life and death through the prism of loss, in Chris Cresswell’s “all that’s left is dirt and sky” are just some of the remarkable works for the Byrne:Kozar:Duo that will be heard on this evening length event.
