Synopsis

Product Description
The sequel to his trail-blazing 50-State solo cello tour and recording, ANTHEM, released in 2003, FIGMENT is the latest evolution of Haimovitz s signature solo set, embracing the contemporary musical communities of his
two home countries, the US and Canada.

Inspired by centenarian composer Elliott Carter and his two Figments for solo cello, the program brings together a wide range of important new music for cello and electronics by leading and emerging North American composers.

From the Middle Eastern microtones of Gilles Tremblay s Threnody for Lebanon, to Ana Sokolovic s Balkan folk influenced Vez, from Serge Provost s cutting-edge Les Vertiges de S. for electronically-processed solo cello, to up
and coming composer/singer-songwriter Du Yun s San, a deconstruction of haunting ancient Chinese fragments.

Figment embraces the diversity of our collective experience. The program, which also includes music by Steven Stucky, Luna Pearl Woolf, and sample-artist Socalled, celebrates innovative North American composers who seek a renewed lyricism and epitomize a new era of hope and creativity in the face of challenging times.
