Interweaves and Connections: Threading Ideas Across New Works (Adeline Wong)

  • Seminar Room 1 3 Conservatory Drive Singapore 117376 (map)

Adeline Wong, presenter

In this composition seminar, Adeline Wong talks about her approach towards form and process with reference to her recent works Interweaves for string quartet and Nexus for low brass quintet.  Interweaves marks the first of a series of connected pieces that the composer is working on.  In this process, musical materials used in the ending of a work are now utilized in the beginning of a new one. For example, the conclusion of Interweaves is the introduction of Nexus.  Although the two works are connected, the different instrumentation and presentation (albeit based on earlier materials) makes it a new listening experience.  

Adeline Wong is a faculty member of the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music.  Her works have been performed by the Belgian National Orchestra, Orkest de ereprijs, the Netherlands, Bang on A Can USA, The Song Company, Australia, New Zealand Symphony Orchestra and the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra.
