Revien is a contemporary chamber ensemble consisting of three members of the Georgia Guitar Quartet—cellist Phil Snyder along with Kyle Dawkins and Brian Smith on guitars and electronics. Formed in Athens while students at UGA, the trio’s repertoire embraces classical music while incorporating an impressive mix of original compositions and popular music into their programs.
The name of the group is taken from the text of the first piece the band played together, the art song “After a Dream” by Gabriel Fauré. Revien is related to the idea of “coming back” or “returning,” reflected in Snyder’s return to his first instrument, the cello, as well as the group’s return to its roots performing a wide assortment of musical instruments and styles. We can’t think of a better symbol to help usher in the return of live performances in Hodgson Hall!
