LDPhoto1012BThe Wisconsin Premiere of Lawrence Dillon’s Multiplicity will be given by a group of six violinists, led by Bowing Rogue, the duo of Ilana Setapen and Margot Schwartz, and special guests on Tuesday, January 23 – 7:30 PM at Helen Bader Recital Hall of the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music, 1584 North Prospect Avenue in Milwaukee.

Dillon writes about the piece, “Multiplicities abound in our daily lives, countless duplications, each of which we strive to personalize, to distinguish with our personal touch, our page, our device, our moment. The sheer number of individualities at times seems to swallow all distinctions into a burbling mass. But now and again a single voice emerges, is heard and can be celebrated. We are what each of us does; we are what all of us do.” A recent performance of Multiplicity can be seen on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_QGI0gJDQ2Q.

Other composers on the program are Martinu, Sarasate, Moszkowski, Shostakovich and Leclair. Other performers are pianist Stefanie Jacob and violinists Dylana Leung, Zhan Shu, Lindsay Erickson and Peter Vickery.
