flora

Christina Volpini

flora has been performed in Montréal and Oslo…

Canadian composer Martin Arnold once said in an interview, “I think music can create a kind of permanent location, a place you can return to; to discover new things and have more experiences.” In my own practice, this way of thinking about music offers an opportunity to grow closer to stories and voices through an extended encounter in time. flora is a portrait in sound of my late grandmother, my interpretation in music of her voice on a vinyl recording from when she was just 21 years old. It is a deeply meaningful experience for me to share space with her voice in this way. I am grateful to Quatuor Bozzini for playing an integral part in the development of this piece and handling this material with such care.
