New repertoire commencing for EUSO (Brahms 3 etc.), EYSO concert looming with Borodin and Shostakovich and off into the second quartet we go for the Vega String Quartet! Never a dull moment, to be sure.
A triumph for the Emory University Symphony Orchestra! Great reception of the Glass and lovely performances of the Copland, Barber and Hanson for a capacity audience. Thanks again, Philip Glass and Matt Haimovitz for making this such a wonderful couple of weeks for the orchestra, composition students and me.
Just a couple of hours away from our first of two rehearsals with Matt for the Glass: Second Cello Concerto this Saturday!
In advance of 2014-2015 performances of my Symphony No. 3, I am posting excerpts from the 2011 premiere given by the Emory University Symphony Orchestra. Making some minor revisions here and there and REALLY looking forward to certain orchestras releasing their 14-15 seasons!
Back into the writing process for the quartet! Emory’s string quartet in-residence, the Vega Quartet will be performing this on March 1, 2014.
Couple of interviews posted on the Media page: always fun talking with Robert Spano and particularly enjoyed my conversation with Atlanta music critic, William Ford. Also great to see that the special ‘add 20 pounds’ filter was in use by all videographers.
It’s a great follow-up to my interview/conversation with Philip Glass a couple of weeks ago to have the wonderful Matt Haimovitz here next week! Matt’s coming in as part of Emory’s Philip Glass Residency to perform the Second Cello Concerto with the University Symphony Orchestra.
We just went live this evening (thanks to the wonderful Richard Lorenc, website guru for the Emory orchestras); content will go up on the various pages over the next few days. My thanks to Michael Swisher for the permission to use his FABULOUS artwork in yet another joint venture!
