Amy Williams: Sonatas and Interludes
Amy Williams: Sonatas and Interludes
John Cage’s groundbreaking Sonatas and Interludes for solo prepared piano will be interspersed with brand-new interludes by Chicago composers Nomi Epstein, Robert Reinhart, Jeffrey Weeter, Jonathon Kirk and Joann Cho. The dozens of screws, bolts, pieces of rubber, coins, strips of plastic inserted into the strings of the piano are sometimes combined with unprepared notes to create a breathtaking array of colors. The influence of Cage’s invention is still felt 70 years after the premiere and will be reflected in the new works using the same set of preparations.

Pianist/composer Amy Williams will be returning to Chicago to present this journey through the eight permanent emotions of Ancient Hindu aesthetics: the “white" emotions (heroic, erotic, mirthful and wondrous) and the “black” emotions (fear, anger, disgust, and sorrow). All lead to a state of transcendence and tranquility.
