Hannah Lash's Three Shades Without Angles Premieres with Boston Symphony Chamber Players

Hannah Lash's <em>Three Shades Without Angles</em> Premieres with Boston Symphony Chamber Players

On February 9, the Boston Symphony Chamber Players premiere a new trio by Hannah Lash at Jordan Hall in Boston, Massachusetts. The piece, titled Three Shades Without Angles, was commissioned by the Boston Symphony Orchestra to celebrate the 50th Anniversary Season of its popular chamber series.

Three Shades Without Angles, scored for flute, viola, and harp, demonstrates Lash's skill at harnessing taut and evocative compositional focus from even the smallest instrumental forces. In the trio, Lash has created a piece “that plays with the idea of transformation of musical shapes”, for which she took inspiration from Auguste Rodin’s sculpture The Three Shades. She states:

All material in the piece is derived from a single idea or motive whose shape changes as the piece unfolds... I was deeply drawn to the sinewy character of Rodin’s work, its intensity, muscularity, consistency, and the way in which movement and energy is represented in his shapes.

The event includes a free pre-concert talk at Jordan Hall with Lash and the other composers selected for the anniversary celebration, including Kati Agócs, Gunther Schuller and Yehudi Wyner.
