Enter the musical world of renowned composer Steven Snowden with works for string quartet and the world premiere of “This Mortal Frame,” for cello and electronics!
The music of Steven Snowden has been described as “Beguiling… combining force with clarity” (San Francisco Classical Voice), “Wonderfully dynamic” (Interlude Hong Kong), “Rustic, red-blooded” (New Music Box), “Marvelously evocative”, (Cleveland Plain Dealer), and “The most wildly intriguing sight and sound I have experienced at a concert” (The Boston Musical Intelligencer)
‘This Mortal Frame’ for cello and electronics, was composed for distinguished RVA cellist Schuyler Slack. The music chronicles the journey of Henry “Box” Brown, the Richmond-area slave who had himself mailed to Philadelphia in 1849 in a wooden box to escape the bonds of slavery.
