Notes on the Program:
With Talkback IV, the fourth in a series of compositions for acoustic instruments and live electronics, Barash explores extended techniques, enhanced timbre, and other sonic features that are characteristic of the instrument by magnifying and amplifying otherwise subtle nuances and bringing them to the foreground. David Fetherolf has continually poked at Somerville Sonata over the years, like a chef checking to see if a roast is done, or a child poking an animal to see if it's still alive. The Old Rose Reader was inspired by Frances White's love of old garden roses. John Adams refers to Road Movies as "travel music."
