Where is the border between language and music? How does sound harden into signification, and how does language break down into song? What is the difference between our perceptions of meaning in these two media? Violinist Keir GoGwilt and composer Matthew Aucoin explore this fluid boundary in Words and Music, a boundary-testing program of music and poetry – and some works that feel like music and poetry at once. The program will include new work by Aucoin, as well as Kurtag, Celan, Webern, and Berg.
