Nine by Twelve

“Bach's complex exchange of melodic statements among the instruments suggests conversations.  I have always been drawn to the music, but it was not until I heard a recording of the ensemble called Four Voices (on NPR) that I imagined myself putting these works to dance.  It has been a stimulating, collaborative journey with these nine movements and twelve wonderful dancers as we delved to find the stories within each section.  And although I don't know the musicians of Four Voices personally, I feel that we have become friends through the music and wish to express my appreciation that they have allowed us to use this recording gratis toward the creation of ‘Nine by Twelve’.”  —Lynne Taylor-Corbett
