Empowering Performers: Extended Techniques in Andrew Norman’s The Companion Guide to Rome
Violist Anne Lanzilotti presents a lecture recital on the use of extended techniques for strings in Andrew Norman’s The Companion Guide to Rome (2010). In Norman’s own words, “Like many of the buildings in Rome, this piece is the product of a long gestation marked by numerous renovations, accretions, and ground-up reconstructions. . . . The music is, at different times and in different ways, informed by the proportions of the churches, the qualities of their surfaces, the patterns in their floors, the artwork on their walls, and the lives and legends of the saints whose names they bear.” The work was named a finalist for the 2012 Pulitzer Prize in music. The presentation will also include short videos from Lanzilotti’s online project http://www.shakennotstuttered.com, a free online resource demonstrating extended techniques for strings in Norman’s orchestral and chamber works.
