Add to Calendar 04-04-2013 04-04-2013 15 Composer Portraits - Rebecca Saunders A star pupil of Wolfgang Rihm, Rebecca Saunders (b. 1969) favors a delicate, sparse aesthetic. "From this surface of apparent silence," the composer explains, "I try to draw out and mold sound and color." Finding inspiration in the work of Samuel Beckett, the philosophy of Goethe, and Wassiliy Kandinsky's writings on spirituality in art, Saunders' seems to strip away the extraneous and ornamental in order to uncover the essential within. Her works explore the unique timbres of idiosyncratic solo instruments and chamber ensembles, all performed with thoughtfulness by the members of Either/Or. The Guardian calls Saunders "one of the most intriguing British composers of her generation," and for good reason. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=128717 Miller Theatre true DD/MM/YYYY
