Appassionata – By Candace Knapp

The musical term that informs a musician to play passionately, “Appassionata” simultaneously evokes the stance of a human figure, a wild animal and an intangible force.  At over seven and a half feet tall, Knapp’s work appears to be waving its curling arms, its movements slowly transforming from intended to involuntary in the same way one changes as he is mentally and physically carried away by the music.
