In March 2015, Boston Modern Brass will present a program of works that explore the connections and relationships between sound and visual cognition. Works by Jason Huffman and Kevin Joest, exploring the inspiration of paintings in the composition process and Hume’s thought experiment on the missing shade of blue, will have their world premieres. Additional pieces by Edward Miller and Gottfried von Einem take inspiration from the paintings of Hieronymus Bosch and Karl-Hartwig Kaltner respectively. Carl Ruggles’ “Angels” for muted brass choir and Henry Brant’s post-apocalyptic “The Fourth Millennium” round out the theme of the night. C. Neil Parsons joins the program on Bass Trombone.
