Radius Ensemble: KINESPEHERE

Presented by Radius Ensemble at Longy's Pickman Hall

The KINESPHERE, or immediate space around one’s body, gained far greater significance during the pandemic than the modern dancer who coined the term could ever have imagined. We became obsessed with protecting this personal space, while also yearning for physical contact. Radius Ensemble opens its 2021-22 season by exploring this tension. From the sultry touch of dancers in Astor Piazzolla’s Tango Suite for wind quintet – performed here in celebration of the composer’s centenary – to the more private and metaphorical Intimacy of Harmony for solo piano by Boston composer Jonathan Bailey Holland, KINESPHERE investigates the proximity and physicality we are slowly reclaiming in COVID’s wake. Jennifer Higdon’s jaunty tribute to the bassoon, Dark Wood, rounds out the program along with André Previn’s Quintet for horn and strings.
