Notes from Clyfford Still

March 31, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Commissioned by the Denver chamber group Playground Ensemble, Notes from Clyfford Still is a new work by composer Nathan Hall. Using texts and quotes from Still’s personal notebooks and correspondence, Hall paints a musical portrait of the artist showing not only his passionate and fiercely independent personality but also his moments of uncertainty, introspection, and tenderness.  As a companion piece to Hall’s recent 20 Works in 20 Minutes (performed in the Museum’s galleries in November of 2016), Notes from Clyfford Stillfeatures selections that interpret Clyfford Still’s works on paper and a new work for solo cello performed by Richard von Foerster.

Now in its 11th season, Playground Ensemble is Denver’s premiere chamber music organization and showcases adventurous new music from Colorado and beyond through concerts, education curricula, and creative collaborations.
