New Commission for Sons d’Hiver
For Sons d’hiver, Elaine Mitchener has created Triptychus, a piece which is bound to renew the art of piano-vocal recitals. Mitchener is energetically and unapologetically into everything, and she mixes all sorts of influences to create a multi-octave musical performance bringing her closer to the heart of what truly matters. Little things. Microscopic things. The Tryptichus, a tiny sea gastropod, has influenced through its pyramidal shape the way musical ideas are structured and the way they unfold within the trio. “Nature teaches us”, according to Mitchener. Her inspiration turns the recital into a vocal performance of sorts, with electronical and video-sensitive elements. Quite a regenerating experience.
