Q&A | 10 Questions For Christina Volpini

By Ludwig Van on March 22, 2019

Christina Volpini
Canadian composer Christina Volpini talks with Ludwig Van about her hot-off-the-press score for Toronto’s Esprit Orchestra, “as within, so without”.

Hamilton Ontario-based composer Christina Volpini is a composer whose style is focused intently on the subtle sounds that fall between the cracks. She has written works for large ensemble, chamber ensembles, soloists, mixed media, live electronics, and film.

Taking a page from composers like Morton Feldman, she uses economy as a vehicle to get to the truth what she wants to say as an artist. Much like her personality, Volpini’s music is introspective and focused on saying more with less.

Lean in, and listen close. You don’t want to miss anything.

You can hear her latest work, “as within, so without” performed by the Esprit Orchestra at New Wave Reprise at Trinity St. Paul’s Centre on Friday, April 5, 2019, at 7 pm.
