Notes on Fiction: Music & Literature Five-Year Anniversary

Performance of Saariaho: Nocturne for solo violin

From CenterforFiction.org: "As part of our ongoing Notes on Fiction series, please join us for the official U.S. fifth anniversary celebration of the international arts journal Music & Literature. Since its inception in 2012, Music & Literature has quickly distinguished itself as "one of the finest and truly rarified journals in circulation" (City Lights), earning acclaim from National Public Radio, the Times Literary Supplement, and The Paris Review, among other standard-bearers, for its devotion to bringing to light the work of underrepresented artists from around the world, as well as its corresponding global events programming.

This celebration features the renowned Oulipo novelist and music critic Paul Griffiths, whose work is explored in Music & Literature no. 7, along with readings, appreciations, and live musical performances of works by M&L featured composers Kaija Saariaho, Unsuk Chin, and others. More information about the project can be found at www.musicandliterature.org."
