This is a Last Minute Concert Announcement for New Yorkers
Are you musically adventurous?
If you are in the New York area, and are into interesting, beautiful, creative music, go hear this concert at the historic Old Stone House in Brooklyn. There are two performances—tonight and tomorrow night, at 7 PM.
Concrete Timbre is a fantastic collective of composers and performers that keeps the fire of New York’s Avant Garde scene alight and alive. The concert is in part a memorial tribute to my former roommate, the late, great, beloved and very much missed Manuela Lechler, whose presence in my life as a composer and saxophonist and friend played a big part in inspiring me to start composing myself.
There is a lot of music on this program, but included in it are two pieces that I wrote for solo violin with voice narration–a setting of two poems from a set of really fun and touching poems by Sylvaine Hinglais that was also inspired by her friendship with Manuela.
It’s the first time I’ve had something performed in a while–by someone other than myself. I had a lot of fun writing these two short pieces and I was thrilled by how well the amazing violinist Adam von Hausen was performing them during the run-through video I saw.
