Variant 6 presents a world premiere from composer Joanne Metcalf. Joanne’s music draws inspiration from Renaissance and medieval polyphony, ancient Georgian music, and contemporary extended techniques. We’re thrilled to find a composer who will write to both of our specialties: early and new music. The rest of the program will feature other works that thematically link to the poem Joanne will set: Denise Levertov’s The Sea’s Wash in the Hollow of Your Heart.
