Parallel Freedoms - Rockport, ME

  • Union Hall 24 Central Street Rockport, ME US (map)

We find labels in every aspect of our world and lives.  As musicians, we’ve been labeled from the day we started taking lessons. Some of us play “fiddle,” some play jazz, and others play “classical” violin. Parallel Freedoms is an exploration of the blurred lines between these worlds, where classical and jazz composers inspire one another, and where we as classically trained musicians are inspired to program, arrange, and improvise music that reflects these parallel explorations of freedom. From Debussy’s boundary-breaking string quartet to the be-bop licks and Charlie Parker quotes in Andriessen’s Facing Death, from lush and lilting melodies to swinging rhythms, we express our love for music regardless of genre.

PROGRAM:
DEBUSSY String Quartet in G minor arr. Jonathan Morton
TRENET La Mer arr. Alex Goodin
ANDRIESSEN Facing Death
SPALDING Really Very Small arr. Alex Goodin
