THE COMPOSER ON HER CONCERT
'MUCH OF THIS MUSIC IS INSPIRED BY LANDSCAPE AND POETRY - from the clean pure haiku of Japan in chiyo ("cool clear water, the beauty of hidden things") to the work of thirteenth century Persian poet Rumi in turn ('Turn as the earth and moon turn, circling what they love') to the gaelic psalmody of Stórr evoking the Outer Hebrides of Scotland. The poetic landscape of Iceland inspires Fall Approaches with the ancient practice of rimur chant ("Soon we will not see the sun, soon the river will be frozen"). This is a concert presenting the work of two sisters, born on a barren and isolated peninsula of haunting beauty, jutting out into the Atlantic Ocean - a connecting thread of dramatic geography, at once wild and rugged.' Linda Buckley

Hear Linda in her video interview with CMC's Jonathan Grimes.
