Linda Bouchard with Kyle Bruckmann
Linda Bouchard’s works are defined by the importance of color and textures, and the structures of her compositions are intimately linked to the orchestral choices she makes for each composition, be it a solo piece or a composition for full orchestra.
Her compositions are often inspired by nature’s geometry, structure, and textures, as if writing music could begin by staring with a magnifying glass at nature’s elements — water, gas, rock formations, chemical reactions — then from those images creating a series of abstract landscapes.
Born in Québec, Canada, Linda Bouchard has been an active composer, orchestrator, conductor, and producer for over thirty-five years. She has received awards from the Conseil Québecois de la Culture the Canada Council for the Arts, Fleck Fellowship from The Banff Centre, the Princeton Composition Contest, the National Association of Composers a Fromm Music Foundation Award from Harvard University.
This concert took place on October 16, 2018 at the Goldman Theater at the David Brower Center in Berkeley, California.
