The Music of Cindy Cox

David Milnes, director

CINDY COX
Cañon
[Four Studies of Light and Dark]
Hishuk ish ts’ awalk [All things are One]
Scenes from The Road to Xibalba (World Premiere)

UC Berkeley’s acclaimed ensemble in residence pays tribute to the work of Music Department faculty member and eminent composer Cindy Cox, whose compositions are inspired by the invisible laws of nature. The program presents a kaleidoscopic portrait of Cox’s chamber music over several decades, from 1989’s [Four Studies of Light and Dark] for piano and percussion to 2010’s Cañon for an octet of woodwinds and brass, to 2014’s Hishuk ish ts’ awalk (All Things are One), a piece for clarinet, strings, and piano, inspired by the rainforest and native inhabitants of Canada’s Pacific Rim National Park Reserve. The concert also features the world premiere of selections from Cox’s large new theatrical work for vocal soloists, chorus, and ensemble, The Road to Xibalba. “Her music…is always buoyant, puckish, rhythmically alive and crisply engaging (San Francisco Chronicle).
