hope lies fallow

Keir GoGwilt (violin) & Johnny Chang (viola) perform selections from "hope lies fallow" (Another Timbre 2022).

March 8 | Doors 20:00 | Concert 20:30
Karl-Marx-Straße 28, Berlin

Keir GoGwilt & Johnny Chang's recent release "hope lies fallow" was developed after works by Orlando de Lassus and Hildegard von Bingen and the Cantigas de Santa Maria.

Keir GoGwilt is a violinist, scholar, and composer. Known as a "formidable performer" (New York Times) with an "evocative sound" (London Jazz News) and "finger-busting virtuosity" (San Diego Union Tribune), he has soloed with groups including the Orchestra of St. Luke's, Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra, Chinese National Symphony, Orquesta Filarmonica de Santiago, and the Boston Modern Orchestra Project. His recompositions of renaissance and medieval music with violinist Johnny Chang have been released on Another Timbre, and his improvising duo with bassist Kyle Motl has been noted for their "rhapsodic gestures" (The New Yorker) and "keen musical intellects" (The Wire).

Violinist-composer Johnny Chang engages in extended explorations surrounding the relationships of sound/listening and the in-between areas of improvisation, composition and performance. In 2018, Chang initiated a new framework for the presentation of creative research and performances, "Partitions & Resonances," aimed at encouraging collaborations between the varied disciplines of composition, musicology, historical research, and performance. He currently collaborates with Peter Ablinger, Jürg Frey, Antoine Beuger, Sam Dunscombe, Keir GoGwilt, Catherine Lamb, Klaus Lang, Mike Majkowski, Phill Niblock, Michael Pisaro-Liu, Derek Shirley, Germaine Sijstermans, Taku Sugimoto, and Eric Wong.
