Turner Sims Associate Artist Lawrence Power is soloist-director of Collegium, an exciting new group formed from Europe’s finest young musicians. For their Turner Sims debut they traverse all four seasons in a journey that takes us from Schubert to Jazz-Age America.
Piazzolla’s tango-charged Four Seasons of Buenos Aires is laced with arrangements of haunting Romantic Lieder. Composer-violinist Heinrich Ignaz Franz von Biber was an innovator in the development of string technique. His La Battalia is remarkable because it re-creates the battle sounds of muskets and cannon using strings alone.
