In a concert for the Cascadia Chapter of the National Association of Composers, art historian and curator Patricia Fortini Brown assembled a concert of music by Walter Winslow (1947-1998) and his brother, composer Jeff Winslow (b.1954), featuring the last composed work by the elder Winslow.
From the composer's note: Concertati Veneziani was composed in 1996. The instrumentation of 4 violins, viola, and cello allows for the play of two violin soloists against a string quartet group, and allows for solo treatment of the group of violins as well.
On Monday, March 10th, 2014, Cascadia Composers presented works by both Winslows in the concert "From Oregon to Venice, with Love" in The Old Church in Portland, Oregon.
Winslow's life was cut short by cancer at age 50, though his music continues to be performed, made available by ACA, and his son Jeff, a composer who studied at the University of California at Berkeley, remains a strong advocate.
