Longy Faculty Artist Recital
A modal analysis of Bach Chorales, Cantatas, and Fugues from the perspective of the Lydian Chromatic Concept provides a rich collection of natural elements for improvisational navigation. Schwendener last year published 'Organic Music Theory', a perspective based on understanding universal musical elements that nature provides. These ingredients are available to all in the creation of their own musical language. "This one-set performance is entirely my own realization of the modal elements, of Bach's amazing relationship with music and nature: the ingredients he laid out are told through my own life-journey."
