April 1: Left Coast Chamber Ensemble at 142 Throckmorton

Posted By on Thu, Apr 1, 2010 at 8:39 AM

It’s long been theorized that the senses aren’t mutually exclusive; that they work in tandem to produce sensations in the body and brain instead of independently to provide rote, one-track information. So it is with music, particularly with composers who believe in the synesthesia of music tones with colors, patterns and shapes. ‘Audible Visions’ is the name of the Left Coast Chamber Ensemble’s program in Mill Valley this week, showcasing the works of five such composers. Punctuated by Gabriel Faure’s Piano Quartet in G minor, the program also Finnish composer Kaija Saariaho’s Sept Papillons, a sonic image of butterflies; Matthew Barnson’s String Quartet, awarded the Left Coast Composition prize; William Grant Still’s Suite for violin and piano and Barbara Kolb’s Umbrian Colors. Bring an open mind, close your eyes and see what visions emerge when the program gets underway on Thursday, Apr. 1, at 142 Throckmorton Theatre. 142 Throckmorton Ave., Mill Valley. 8pm. $15-$20. 415.383.9600.Gabe Meline
