Kurt Rohde awarded Bogliasco Fellowship
Bogliasco Foundation

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.
