Program 3 – May 2023

Sounds and Shadows


Volti presents a concert of beautiful and groundbreaking music by a wonderfully diverse group of composers:

“Words Cast Shadows” — a world premiere from Volti’s resident composer Mark Winges, setting poetry by the “eloquent and exacting poet” Jane Hirshfield. 

“Given Sound” — an “American Modern Madrigal” by Trevor Weston, influenced by Monteverdi and jazz. 

“Aletheia” — the US premiere of a 2022 work by Lithuanian composer Žibuoklė Martinaitytė, whose works explore the tensions and longings of identity and place. 

“Hematite” — a movement of Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Caroline Shaw’s “Ochre,” which Volti premiered in 2022. 

“In the Rain Shadow” — by the Bay Area’s own Eric Tuan, inspired by Mary Austin’s book about the Owens Valley.
