Sarah Saviet performs works that choreograph sound for the violin- the hands moving through space, the arc of an elbow, the resistance of fingers pulling threads and strings.

This program includes a classic- Xenakis’ Miika, a new work by Saviet, and two recent works by Lisa Streich and Tim McCormack.

Sarah Saviet is a violinist based in Berlin and dedicated to the performance of contemporary music. She performs as a soloist and chamber musician and is a member of the Saviet/Houston Duo and Ensemble Mosaik.

Sarah’s debut solo album SPUN (Coviello Contemporary) was recently nominated for the Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik for new music. She has also released on all that dust and another timbre, and her recording of Liza Lim’s violin concerto ‘Speak, Be Silent,’ with the Riot Ensemble on HCR/NMC records was selected as one of New Yorker Magazine’s ‘Best recordings of 2019.’
