ZAWA!, described as “electrifying” and “mesmerizing” in performances across the

country and abroad, is celebrating its 20th season together in 2017-18. Musical soulmates

Jill Felber and Claudia Anderson merged artistic forces in 1997. Their first

commission was running the edgE by Jennifer Higdon (1996), laying the foundation

for ZAWA’s commitment to expand the repertoire for two flutes and to reflect a

wealth of contemporary styles. Their arrangements of Claudio Monteverdi and

Jules Mouquet (available through ALRY Publications) exhibit sheer beauty of sound

and breathtaking lyricism, at the other end of the expressive spectrum. Collectively,

ZAWA’s diverse repertoire displays the drama, lyricism, versatility, and humor

they are known for, all delivered with high-spirited energy and impact. ZAWA! has

appeared at New York’s Carnegie Hall, London’s Wigmore Hall, and many colleges

and universities nationwide. Recognized as a unique and brilliant partnership,

they have been guest artists at national and international flute festivals, and have

enjoyed headliner performances spanning 2001 to 2016 at the National Flute

Association conventions. In 2014 ZAWA commissioned and premiered Cynthia

Folio’s double flute concerto, Winds for Change, a musical meditation on the effects

of climate change and the environment. ZAWA is touring the country in 2017-18

with this concerto in a new version with flute chamber orchestra; their goal is to

share the performance with strong flute studios across the country and to increase

awareness of concerns over the health and safety of our planet.

LINDA L. HOLLAND is an internationally recognized composer/performer

whose works have been performed in London, Spain, New York, Dallas,

American Music, the National Flute Association, and ASCAP. Her works have

been premiered by ZAWA! (at Carnegie Hall, Wigmore Hall, and National Flute

Association Conventions), Schola Cantorum, Areon Flutes (at Carnegie Hall), the

Ojai Camerata, the Santa Barbara Youth Symphony, Current Sounds New Music

Consortium, and soloist Jill Felber. As a flutist Dr. Holland has been a guest soloist

and lecturer at the National Flute Convention in Dallas, the Southern California

Incorporated, and the International Festival of Women Composers. She has

the Channel Islands Symphony, Ojai Camerata, Santa Barbara Civic Light Opera,

Ojai Chamber Music Series, and the Cabrillo Theatre Company. She is one of the

founding members of the Current Sounds New Music Consortium. In addition

to her work at Santa Barbara City College (since 1999), Dr. Holland directed the

MERIT (Music Education Reinforces Intellect and Talent) program at the Music

Academy of the West from 2002 to 2012, a chamber music training program for

exceptionally talented high school age instrumentalists. Dr. Holland received

her BM in flute and saxophone performance from California State University,

Sacramento, her MM in composition from the San Francisco Conservatory of

Music, her MM in flute from the University of California, Santa Barbara, and her

PhD in composition from the University of California, Santa Barbara.

CARL MARIA VON WEBER (1786-1826), a cousin of Mozart’s wife Constanze,

was trained as a musician from his childhood, the son of a versatile musician who

had founded his own traveling theatre company. He made a favorable impression

as a pianist and then as a music director, notably in the opera-houses of Prague

and Dresden. Here he introduced various reforms and was a pioneer of the craft

of conducting without the use of a violin or keyboard instrument. As a composer

he won a lasting reputation with the first important Romantic German opera, Der

Freischütz. (source: Naxos Records)

CYNTHIA FOLIO (b. 1954) is a composer, music theorist, and flutist. As a young

flute player and army brat, her main inspiration came from her studies at the

Panama Conservatory in the 1960’s; there she studied with Eduardo Charpentier

(first flutist in the Panama Symphony) and had rigorous studies in solfège. She

received her PhD in music theory and Performer’s Certificate in flute from the

Eastman School of Music, where she studied composition with Joseph Schwantner

and flute with Bonita Boyd; Robert D. Morris advised her dissertation on the music

of Schwantner. From 1980 to 1990, she taught music theory and flute at Texas

Christian University and played in the Fort Worth Symphony. She now serves as

Professor and Chair of Music Studies in the Boyer College at Temple University,

where she was honored with the Creative Achievement Award in 2012 and the

Lindback Award for Distinguished Teaching in 1994.

Philadelphia Inquirer reviewers have described Folio’s compositions as “confident

and musical in expressing ideas of great substance,” “intriguing and enjoyable,”

and “imaginatively scored.” She received commissions from such organizations

as Network for New Music, the Relâche Ensemble, the Mendelssohn Club of

Philadelphia, Astral Artistic Services, Ensemble Triolet, Pi Kappa Lambda, and the

National Flute Association. She has held composer residencies at The American

Academy in Rome, Yaddo, and the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts.

The author of many music theory articles and chapters, Folio focuses on the topics

of contemporary music and jazz, including a chapter on Sequenza No. 1 by Berio

in Berio’s Sequenzas (Ashgate Publishers); a chapter on polyrhythm in jazz in

Concert Music, Rock and Jazz Since 1945 (University of Rochester Press); and an

article on Schwantner’s music for Perspectives of New Music. Folio’s compositions

are recorded on many CD’s, including a 2014 release, Inverno Azul, featuring nine

of her compositions (BCM+D label); a 2007 release by the Relâche Ensemble, Press

Play (Meyer Music LLC); and a 2006 release of Flute Loops: Chamber Music for Flute

(Centaur Records), featuring eight of her compositions. She also recorded a jazz

flute CD, Portfolio (Centaur Records), which includes four original compositions.

WINDS FOR CHANGE, a musical meditation on the effects of climate change

and the environment (accompanied by optional video and live manipulation of

the flutes), was ZAWA’s idea. My musical relationship with ZAWA! goes back to

2008, when I wrote Z3 (for two flutes and piano: I. Zephyr, II. Zenith, III. ZAWA!)

for them. In six consecutive sections, Winds for Change begins with simulated

wind sounds, giving the impression that the flutes (alto here) are coming from a

great distance onto the stage. Entitled “Canyon Winds,” it captures the vastness of

the Canyon Lands—a historical landscape that goes back to the Anasazi Indians.

The “Hazy Sunrise” section begins in the Canyon Lands but could easily apply

to major cities around the world, where pollutants in the air obscure the sun.

The orchestra creates a high-pitched, vague texture. “Morning Mist” introduces

raindrops in the orchestra and flutes, which trigger electronic raindrops. This

grows into the “Summer Storm,” in which the seemingly innocent drizzle turns

into a serious hurricane, tsunami, or other natural disaster. This accelerates

into “Glacier Calving”— an event that is becoming more common and is often

quite dramatic. This section is almost completely improvised, by both soloists

and orchestra. The thunder sheet, used to evoke thunder in the storm, now

represents the crash of a large glacier falling into the water. An electrifying flute

cadenza follows, then gradually winds down as a transition to the calm final

section, “Ocean Spirits.” An ocean drum opens this section and evokes a mixed

mood of hope and sorrow. It features recorded whale sounds at the beginning

and dolphin sounds at the end, suggesting a plea to protect our waters and our

earth. Near the end, the flutes quote an American Shape-Note hymn, “Arkansas,”

whose text is: “I’ll launch my boat upon the sea; this land is not the land for me.”
