From a concert that never met a live audience, due to the pandemic. But here it is: Gageego! and conductor Rei Munakata perform Shift by Katharina Rosenberger.
Swiss composer Katharina Rosenberger studied in Boston, London and New York and is currently active in the United States. She pays special attention to the works that move between the art forms with elements from concert music, musical theater, sound art and sound installations. Her work has been performed at concerts and festivals in London, Rome, Berlin, Prague, Marseilles and Shanghai.
Her piece SHIFT for two trombones and ensemble was composed in 2016 and premiered in January the following year. One reviewer wrote that her music “seemingly exists in solid, liquid and seemingly gaseous states and on a myriad of planes in our spacetime continuum as we know it”.
