World Premiere of Hannah Lash's Eating Flowers at the Cabrillo Festival of Contemporary Music

Jul. 01, 2015

World Premiere of Hannah Lash's <em>Eating Flowers</em> at the Cabrillo Festival of Contemporary Music

Each summer, the Cabrillo Festival of Contemporary Music brings thrilling new works by living composers to audiences in Santa Cruz, CA. This year proves no different with the world premiere of a new orchestral work, Eating Flowers, by Hannah Lash. Music director and conductor Marin Alsop leads the premiere, which takes place August 15 at the Santa Cruz Civic Auditorium.

Eating Flowers was commissioned by the Cabrillo Festival and sponsored by the Pacific Harmony Foundation. Of the work, Lash writes:

When I sat down to write Eating Flowers I felt in many ways that I was responding to the energies of orchestral music whose colors I find irresistible: music of Ravel, Rimsky-Korsakov, Debussy, and Messiaen particularly. My piece does not quote or even explicitly refer to this older music, but the energy and the color was certainly an influence. I titled my piece Eating Flowers to capture the sense of having tasted the delicious and delicate colors of my favorite orchestral music, which nourished my own creative spirit after having been digested.

The program also features works by Philip Glass, Nico Muhly, Sean Shepherd and Missy Mazzoli.
