The One and the Other: A New Art Song Project by Laras Solnicki

At times focus is on poetic imagery, with music ‘word painting’, as defined in classical music; other times the focus is on musical elements, with text falling impressionistically into the background which we call 'lyrics'; at yet other times, a guided free improvisation section may take-off from a line of poetry.

"A poet of the most advanced kind... Solnicki is a master in her own modern and post-modern poetic mode, which makes powerful use of the techniques of discontinuity, surprising imagery and juxtaposition of images, and sudden unexpected leaps of thought and mood. The originality and enigma of the language, within an overall clarity, is involving, and expresses itself first emotionally. Lara Solnicki’s great vocal range is matched by an equal emotional range, from intimacy to mystery, from sorrow to rage, exultancy to regret. "

-A.F Moritz, Poet Laureate of the City of Toronto (2019-2021), Griffin Poetry Prize Winner, Guggenheim Fellow
