Live in Studio C: ALIAS Chamber Ensemble

Jul 10, 2018

Even with Live in Studio C's commitment to local music, it's a treat when a performance consists entirely of brand new music from Nashville composers, performed by local musicians (including those composers), all inspired by the sights and sounds of Tennessee. In other words, it doesn't get much more local than this week's performance from ALIAS Chamber Ensemble. 

The set list included a preview of ALIAS's final concert of the 2017/18 season, called "Rhythms, Rivers and Roads," happening this Thursday in Ingram Hall. Electric violinist and composer Tracy Silverman brought his piece The Cumberland, a musical evocation of the river that flows through the heart of Nashville, and a selection from cellist Matt Walker's Quartet Out of Time gave playful, rhythmic nods to some of the musical styles this area is known for.

  • Christopher Farrell, viola
  • Matt Walker, cello
