For Piano, 2 Violins, Viola and Cello
This piece began with an invitation—calling upon the boundless creativity of female-identifying composers worldwide to embark on a riveting and innovative journey—a collective symphony of melodic fragments weaving together into a harmonious composition. Under the guidance and artistry of Clarice Assad, a vibrant collage emerged—a composition that converges the fresh and imaginative ideas of these remarkable composers. TAPESTRY is scored for a piano quintet—a collaborative creation that debuted at the prestigious Mainly Mozart festival in 2023. The ensemble, led by Anne Marie-McDermott and featuring a choir of phenomenal female instrumentalists, made audience members jump out of their seats.
