Hailed by The New York Times for her “rich tone” and “virtuosic panache,” violinist Francesca Anderegg delivers insightful accounts of contemporary and classical music. Through her inventive programming, active composer collaborations, and precise yet impassioned interpretations, Anderegg has earned renown as a musical explorer of the first order.
A note from Francesca about the program: 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, I’ve chosen to 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. I conclude my program with Bach’s majestic Partita No. 2 in D minor, with Mazzoli’s work connecting the contemporary and the Baroque.
Gillian Whitehead (b. 1941) – Bright Silence
Grażyna Bacewicz (1909-1969) – Sonata No. 2 for Solo Violin
Clare Glackin (b. 1993) – Four Creatures of the Middle Ages
Missy Mazzoli (b. 1980) – Dissolve, O My Heart
Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) – Partita No. 2 BWV 1004 for Solo Violin
