COMPOSER PORTRAITS: Chaya Czernowin at Miller Theatre

  • Miller Theatre at Columbia University 2960 Broadway New York

Although she studied composition in Tel Aviv, Israeli composer Chaya Czernowin has lived all over the globe, and her work draws upon a rich palette of textures, traditions, and instrumentations. Winter Songs, an ongoing cycle of works for low instruments, “reflects on the aspect of winter that has to do with one being pulled into the cave of one’s interior, into the passivity of long sleep,” she says. In her new work, written for Miller Theatre, Czernowin promises once again to inspire with gorgeous and exotic sonic landscapes.
