I posted earlier about how Lyric Fest’s October 14th program at the AVA in Philly will include my “Cinder”. But what I didn’t know is how many composers are represented in this survey of music by people associated in one way or another with the Philadelphia area. Here’s the list:
Bernstein, Danielpour, Rorem, Blitzstein, Rochberg, Crumb, Menotti, Barber, Hoiby, Weisgall, Djupstrom, Boyle, Primosch, Seyfried, Clearfield, Hagen, K. Smith, Cacioppo, Lloyd, Krantz and Sondheim.
This is a fairly wide range stylistically, and multiple generations are represented.
