Adam Tendler’s “Inheritances” on the Life/Death/Law Podcast

When classical pianist Adam Tendler received a surprise inheritance from his father he used it to commission 16 original works of music to explore the complexity of grief, loss, and inheritance. After each performance of the resulting program, Inheritances, he was struck by the way that the audience stayed in their seats, talking to each other. “This is something I’ve never seen before after a recital or any kind of classical music concert where people are just talking to each other about what just happened. Usually they just make a beeline for the door.  And that’s exactly what I wanted because I didn’t want a program that was going to be so specific about my life and my experience and my father. I really wanted something as abstract and universal that people could just come to it and just enter it at wherever they needed to.”

Redesigning the End is a sponsor of the “Life/Death/Law Podcast”

We sponsor this podcast because Liza Hanks is really cool and has an important voice that more people need to hear. Making a podcast is hard, especially for a small organization (we know this). Although we’re not paying huge dollars for this sponsorship, it feels good to contribute real dollars toward something we hope to see more of in the future.

So thanks, Liza, for your work on the podcast! We’re happy to be your partner in this work.
