Cellist Anastasia Kobekina Creates an Aural Slideshow of Her Trip to Italy on 'Venice'

This story was written by Megan Westberg for the March-April 2024 issue of Strings magazine and is read by the author.

Venice isn’t a place easily rendered. It is a place where imagination and reality blend, and not always harmoniously, where the past and present sit side by side. And to a certain extent, Kobekina wanted to represent Venice as it is and was, but she wasn’t particularly interested in approaching that idea in a literal way.
