Peak Performances Spinning

Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Julia Wolfe (Anthracite Fields, 2015) and “cello goddess” (The New Yorker) Maya Beiser honor the essential labor of spinning thread.

Spinning celebrates the work once performed by hand by women. Music has long been a vital part of the craft — both as a propelling force and as a distraction. To pay homage to the human dignity of this women’s work, Wolfe and Beiser create a sonic universe for three cellos and voice performed by Beiser with Melody Giron and Lavena Johanson featuring multimedia projections imagined by the innovative artist Laurie Olinder.

In Beiser’s words, “I found in Julia’s music a rare quality — combining folk, rock and classical elements in a distinct and relentless energy. This collaboration is one that has been in our minds for many years, and we are thrilled to now embark on this journey together.”
