Kurt Rohde awarded Bogliasco Fellowship
UC Davis Professor Kurt Rohde will be at the Bogliasco Foundation in Genoa, Italy, for Fall Quarter 2019. While in residence, Rohde will compose seeking all that’s still unsung, a new work for string quartet and electronics commissioned by the Lydian Quartet. Rohde’s new piece listens to the rapidly changing sonics of the “outside” natural world and brings them “inside.” It is an interior mirroring of the sounds that surround us and that we take for granted, many of which are disappearing. seeking all that’s still unsung documents in Rohde’s “odd” music the gradual disappearance of songs that will never be sung again. An American nonprofit with a program in Italy, the Bogliasco Foundation awards Fellowships to individuals who have made significant contributions in the arts and humanities.
