Composer Anna Clyne made her Pittsburgh Symphony debut with Manfred Honeck conducting her Masquerade for the gala opener just a few seasons ago. Now her Stride is heard in a Front Row program available from the Pittsburgh Symphony website. Born in England, she makes her home in the Hudson Valley now after serving with Riccado Muti as composer-in-residence in Chicago along with orchestras in Berkeley, California, the Scottish Chamber Orchestra and more. Her new recording, Mythologies, is available in a limited edition vinyl set. She discusses what she is baking during the pandemic and tells the story of her composing so far, along with her latest work in this Zoom conversation with Jim Cunningham.
'Mythologies', just out on Avie, contains five orchestral works by Anna Clyne covering a period of 10 years. James Jolly caught up with the New York-based composer at her home in New York to talk about the collection, her various roles as composer-in-residence, and where she looks for inspiration when responding to a commission.
