Violist Jonah Sirota celebrates his debut solo album STRONG SAD with a performance featuring music from the album with guest performers violist Nadia Sirota and pianist Molly Morkoski. STRONG SAD, out June 22 on National Sawdust Tracks, features eight new elegies for the viola, by eight composers - Jonah Sirota, Paola Prestini, Nico Muhly, Valgeir Sigurosson, Robert Sirota, A.J. McCaffrey, and Rodney Lister, and the improv duo Mondegreen (Jonah Sirota and Kurt Knecht). While some of the music on STRONG SAD may follow the more traditional function of a musical elegy, remembering lost friends and loved ones, the collection also addresses the smaller losses of day-to-day life. Sirota's aim with STRONG SAD is to affirm that mourning need not be saved for funerals, and that sadness, when given a chance to breathe, can be the best path to deep and lasting contentment and joy.
