– Marilyn Nonken gave a superb program at Penn this past Wednesday – her command of dynamic and coloristic nuance is astounding. It was a pleasure to get to know music on her program by some composers who were new to me: Mikel Kuehn, Christopher Trapani, and Richard Carrick. More new and recent music for piano on the upcoming “Eighty-Eight Lately” programs – read more here.
– a reminder that there are two performances of my music tomorrow: in Syracuse, the Society for New Music will play Dancepiece, and here in Philadelphia the Variations on a Hymn Tune will be performed by the Philadelphia Sinfonia.
– I have to take a bit of a break from posting here, due to pressing deadlines and the need to practice for the “Eighty-Eight Lately” programs. But there are almost 900 posts on this blog, so perhaps that archive can keep you amused until I get back.
