A Tissue of Quotations is a suite of nine pieces for solo piano by award-winning composer and pianist Sasha Stella. Each piece is composed entirely of quotations or samples from the classical repertoire. Stella 'remixes' these to form new original works that blend the emotional landscape of the source composers with structured repetition that references sampling and dj-ing. The resultant music, performed live by Sasha on concert grand piano, is both freshly contemporary and subtly familiar. With a stunning visual treatment by internationally renowned video artist Amanda Morgan, A Tissue of Quotations 'reshapes the experience of listening to a classical composition.' - New Music Forum, Feb. 2010. A must for Glass and Nyman fans.
