Of Note

Ivy Priaulx Rainier once said that only sculptors and architects fully understood her music. Her close friend, the British sculptor Barbara Hepworth, said that both mediums enabled artists “to say what one has to say with the greatest economy and, having said it, to let it stand on its own”.

In 2018, composer Missy Mazzoli made history when she became one of the two first women to receive a commission from the Metropolitan Opera. She is currently working on an opera based on George Saunders’ best-selling novel “Lincoln in the Bardo,” which won the Man Booker Prize.

Philip Glass’ Songs and Poems for Solo Cello was written for the cellist Wendy Sutter. The piece has been performed more than 100 times worldwide since its premiere in 2008. Although at least one music critic has noted its structural similarities to some Bach works, Glass has said, “In many ways it owes more to Schubert than to Bach”.
