Cellist Hannah Collins plays the final movement of Benjamin Britten's Suite for solo cello, Op. 72: VI. Moto perpetuo e Canto quarto. This work is featured on her solo debut album, Resonance Lines, released on the Sono Luminus label on September 24, 2021. - Sound and Video by Four/Ten Media: http://fourtenmedia.net/ Recorded at Christ Church Neighborhood House in Philadelphia, PA. ------ About Resonance Lines: An ideal artistic collaboration feels like the discovery and realization of deeply held potential for shared creativity—a sympathetic resonance or surge of energy in the colloquial sense—that is revealed when the right conditions are in place. It may feel lucky or it may feel destined, and in special cases, the “resonating” artists are able to nurture and develop their complementary qualities with lasting effect. This album is a collection of music grown of such pairings, collaborations between composers and cellists joined by shared experiences that lead to creative sparks, unique musical gestures, and new sound worlds. - Learn more and order at https://www.sonoluminus.com/store/resonance-lines ----- Cellist Hannah Collins is a dynamic performer who uses diverse forms of musical expression and artistic collaboration to build connections and community.

Caroline Shaw - in manus tuas | Hannah Collins, cello

Cellist Hannah Collins plays in manus tuas, by Caroline Shaw. - Written in 2009 for Hannah Collins, in manus tuas is based on a 16th century motet by Thomas Tallis. While there are only a few slices of the piece that reflect exact harmonic changes in Tallis' setting, the motion (or lack of) is intended to capture the sensation of a single moment of hearing the motet in the particular and remarkable space of Christ Church in New Haven, Connecticut. This work is featured on Collins's solo debut album, Resonance Lines, released on the Sono Luminus label on September 24, 2021. --- Sound by Sono Luminus: https://www.sonoluminus.com/ Video by Four/Ten Media: http://fourtenmedia.net/ --- Video first released 10/22/21 by Strings Magazine: https://stringsmagazine.com/strings-sessions-cellist-hannah-collins-performs-caroline-shaws-in-manus-tuas/ --- About Resonance Lines: An ideal artistic collaboration feels like the discovery and realization of deeply held potential for shared creativity—a sympathetic resonance or surge of energy in the colloquial sense—that is revealed when the right conditions are in place.
