CHRISTIN SCHILLINGER — DIAPHONIC: NEW SOUNDS FOR BASSOON
Fox Bassoons Performing Artist Christin Schillinger, known for her ‘natural interpretations’ and ‘perfect musical choices’ within new music, specializes in the accessibility of the avant-garde. At the center of the program are two world premieres: Diaphonic by San Francisco composer Kyle Hovatter and Double Helix by Long Beach composer Jenni Brandon.
Program Note by Christin Schillinger:
The first published work for bassoon by a woman dates to 1930: Ruth Crawford Seeger’s Diaphonic Suite for bassoon and cello is a chromatic etude in duet form. In Diaphonic, Kyle Hovatter creates a fresh, and modern composition drawing from Seeger’s original source material. For bassoon and track, the work maintains Seeger’s contrapuntal and chromatic significance, while layering further textural and rhythmic layers to her dissonance.
