A string trio from The Zafa Collective will be workshopping Figure to Ground with composer Eliza Brown. Figure to Ground is a musical response to “Poem from Hölderlin” by Susan Stewart, and the workshop will include a reading of the poem and a discussion of how the poem and the music relate to each other. The trio will play and receive feedback from the composer, and there will be a brief Q&A at the end of the session.
Figure to Ground will be performed publicly by Zafa at Constellation Chicago on January 28.
