About Composers in Focus: CMS welcomes Zosha Di Castri, Jessie Montgomery, Tania León and Joan Tower and offers audiences a rare opportunity to sit in on intimate conversations between composers and musicians who know each other’s work, and in some cases have known each other for decades. The webinar-style presentations will include live, real-time conversations with composers as well as pre-recorded performances of their music.

Composer and violinist Jessie Montgomery talks with violinist Benjamin Beilman about motivation, influences, inspiration and her work Duo for Violin and Cello, which Montgomery calls an “ode to friendship.” Benjamin Beilman, violin, and Nicholas Canellakis, cello, perform the piece, which was newly recorded for CMS this season.
