New Afro-Cuban chamber music in Sept!

September 16, 2014 8:00 pmtoSeptember 29, 2014 9:00 pm

I’m very excited about my latest piece, We Speak Too Much of Danger, for violin and piano and scheduled to be premiered by the fantastic and internationally acclaimed Gregory Fulkerson and Thomas Rosenkranz in September in Ohio, New York, and Delaware.

The piece is inspired by a recent trip to Havana, Cuba and uses as its starting point the rhythms of Afro-Cuban music. I had a great time writing this piece and working very closely with Greg and Tom through a number of drafts and revisions as we tightened and tweaked the work.

It will be featured on a program entitled “Beyond Minimalism” which will explore the progress of contemporary music from the late Minimal era into our current Post-Minimal era. The program will include music by Philip Glass, John Adams, Conrad Cummings, Peter Flint, Stephen Dembski, and Andrew Shapiro, much of which is new music written for Greg and Tom for this program.
