In Search of Lost Sounds
New works for alternative keyboard trio by Wang Lu, Anthony Vine, and Johan Svensson
In search of lost sounds is an ongoing commissioning project for trios that expand Longleash’s traditional violin/cello/piano instrumentation outward to include culturally specific, contemporary, or historic keyboard instruments. The project imagines alternate musical worlds in which keyboard instruments of fundamentally different characters, mechanical actions, tuning systems, and aesthetic functions generate new compositional outcomes for the keyboard trio. This cycle of keyboard trios includes commissions from composers Wang Lu, Anthony Vine, and Johan Svensson.
