Oregon Bach Festival “Bach Listening Room” – Matt Haimovitz’ Primavera Project
This performance features brand new solo cello works written for Matt Haimovitz commissioned by THE PRIMAVERA PROJECT. This new initiative asks composers to write in response to Sandro Botticelli’s enigmatic painting, Primavera, and the prophetic large-scale triptych, Primavera 2020, by contemporary artist Charline von Heyl. Haimovitz releases the first of three albums (featuring 14 out of the 81 total pieces) on June 11, 2021. More information about the project, composers, and pieces is available at THE PRIMAVERA PROJECT’s online hub, www.primaveraproject.com.
