Liz Lane ‘Linear Lines’ 2021/2022 International Revival

Linear Lines, a work which Liz Lane wrote during her PhD in 2009, has lately attracted growing interest with many performances that taking place during 2021 and two more already scheduled for the new year.

Commissioned in April 2009 by the U.S. horn player Marlene Ford, and first performed at a series of lecture/recitals of works by women composers Linear Lines explores a relationship between the musical language of Hildegard of Bingen [1098-1179] and the present day, some 800 years later. The complete chant, In principio omnes, is used as the basis of the work which is split into five sections, each a progressive soliloquy on the original musical material.

Performances of Linear Lines in 2021 include:

27 February – Lucy Smith, Temple University, Philadelphia [online]

18 March – Anne Howarth, Radius Ensemble, Boston, USA [online]

7 May – Lynn Henderson, Royal Academy of Music [online]

21 May – Emily Rushton, Bradshaw Hall, Royal Birmingham Conservatoire of Music [online]

5 November – Lynn Henderson, Wigmore Hall, London

17 November – Jeffrey Snedeker, Central Washington University, USA

20 November – Dylan Dukat, Potsdam, NY, USA
