about

Judah Adashi’s piece: my heart comes undone is a meditation on patience and longing, inspired by the work of Björk (the title and musical point of departure come from her song “Unravel”) and Arvo Pärt. The score includes an epigraph by Rainer Maria Rilke, translated by Stephen Mitchell: “We don't accomplish our love in a single year / as the flowers do.” my heart comes undone was commissioned by the Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University, specifically by the Preparatory String Department's Pre-Conservatory Violin Program. The piece was conceived with three possible scorings in mind -– solo cello with loop pedal, solo cello and strings, or string quartet -– but can be performed in a variety of blended instrumental or vocal combinations, in greater numbers, and with or without amplification, effects, lighting and movement. The piece was inspired by the composers wish to write something that presented new challenges to the PCVP violinists, by way of its contrast with their characteristically virtuosic repertoire. It was also inspired by his relationship with his then girlfriend, now wife Lavena Johnson. “…(it) took a long time to develop (for various reasons, nearly two years elapsed between our first meeting and our first date!), and by her cello playing, in particular, the experience of listening to her practice long, slow scales.” The arrangement performed for solo electric guitar and loop pedal was a collaborative one between guitarist Zane Forshee and Judah Adashi. Forshee recently released a recording of this work in March 2017 on the Artists Recording Collective Label.
