"She is Fierce: The Art of Joyce Cutler-Shaw" is an exploration of the multimedia artist's expansive and diverse body of work, featuring commentary from colleagues and an in-depth interview with Cutler-Shaw. Throughout her long career the art of Joyce Cutler-Shaw has taken on a wide spectrum of forms, from melting iconic "ice words" and reflective light sculptures to installations and public commissions to intricately drawn depictions of the human form. Her subjects are human identity and the natural world; her themes are evolution and survival - from reptile into bird, from mammal to human, and from human, perhaps, to humane. But always at her art's core, according to Cutler-Shaw, is her use of drawing "as a way of knowing, as a mode of inquiry, as a visual language." Her "word images" have been central motifs, informing her works from the outset. Culter-Shaw's works are exhibited in museums and library collections worldwide.

The serenade is a venerable 18th-century form as practiced by Haydn, Mozart and others. In his "Serenade in D Minor" Antonin Dvo ák adapted the form to his own purposes, scoring for an unusual combination of instruments and introducing an unusual thematic unity. The result is a piece of good-spirited, sunny music that reflects Dvo ák's own optimistic personality. Recorded on 08/20/2017.

As suggested by the title, a divertimento was intended as light, relaxed music, a diversion for the audience. This description can't begin to do justice to Mozart's "Divertimento in E-flat Major," an expansive string trio widely considered one of Mozart's greatest chamber works. While "Divertimento" has the jaunty passages we associate with the composer, at times the mood is serious indeed, and the overall quality is somewhat bittersweet. As always, Mozart handles the simple structure of the sonata form with great sophistication. Recorded on 11/22/2017.
