Liza Lim

Program Notes by Lara Pellegrinelli

“Because of these years of absence . . . collaborations have taken on another sort of power . . . A musical term for this kind of return would be ‘refrain.’ And the power of the refrain is this sense of arrival, renewal, and recognition.”

— Liza Lim

“I am drawn to the animacy of [rope] . . . You cannot completely control its behavior. It may snap at any moment, which reminds you of time and the thread of life that keeps spinning out”

— Liza Lim

“...the JACK Quartet enables me to take a speculative approach to composition. They are most able collaborators in this sense. They’re a quartet that is willing to go anywhere.”

— Liza Lim
