As much as a painter and subject are both represented in a visual portrait, composers and performers often mix in fascinating ways in music. Icelandic-American cellist, Sæunn Thorsteinsdóttir performs a program that explores contemporary works for solo cello that she feels a close connection. From Jane Antonia Cornish’s aptly named “Portrait” from 2015 to a piece inspired by Sæunn’s grandfather’s poetry by Melia Watras, the program explores various multifaceted connections between performer and composer.
