– The Crossing and Network for New Music collaborate on a new work by Pulitzer Prize winner Lewis Spratlan called Hesperus is Phosphorus. Read more about the piece here. Performances in Philadelphia, Saturday, June 2, 8:00 pm at the Presbyterian Church of Chestnut Hill and in NYC, Tuesday, June 5, 7:30 pm at Park Avenue Christian Church.
– Dolce Suono Ensemble offers a Mozart and Schubert program, Sunday, June 3, 3:00 pm at the Trinity Center for Urban Life in Philadelphia. Of special interest is the premiere of some arrangements of Mozart concert arias by another Pulitzer Prize winner, Steven Stucky.
– Bartok’s Sonata for Two Pianos and Percussion is a piece where the degree of excellence (it’s as good as anything he wrote) is in inverse proportion to the number of performances. But you can hear it in a Music from Copland House performance at Merestead in Mt. Kisco, NY, Sunday June 3 at 3:00 pm. The program also features a premiere by Pierre Jalbert – my first composition student at Penn way back in the 20th century – not that he needed much teaching; he was pretty great right from the start.
