Oregonian features interview with composer-in-residence Libby Larsen

Larsen shared the thought processes that culminated in her composition, “Moabit Sonnets,” premiering Friday and Saturday at Linfield.Commissioned to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Linfield Chamber Orchestra, “Moabit Sonnets” is adapted from poems written from prison by Albrecht Haushofer, a German Resistance activist during World War II.

“The sonnets are Haushofer’s authentic struggle to articulate his personal truth,” says Larsen. “This struggle is what draws me to all art.”
