Random Access Music Presents:
"Random Number One"
My soul waits is the first piano solo work I have written since finishing school 10 years ago. In this work I explore gentle abstract expressions, meditative silences, and calm repetition which evoke tender reminiscence or longing. I'm excited to share this piece with you.
Also on the program:
Guy Barash’s Talkback I for clarinet and computer is the first in a series of compositions for solo instruments and real-time digital signal processing. It was hailed by the Queens Chronicle as being “at once divine, serene and haunting.” as big as alone by Allen Schultz was inspired by the fury of the blizzard that struck the East Coast in December, 2010 as well as the calm that preceded and followed it. David Fetherolf’s new work Fool me once was written for Thomas Pierce and Kate Dillingham, two instrumentalists whose artistry and commitment to contemporary music is unbounded. The work, episodic in nature, is a somewhat raucous, often overlapping, rarely calm conversation between the instruments befitting our current political season. The final movement of Górecki’s Lerchenmusik references the opening of Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 4, the music of Messiaen, and a "bird" motive that derives from the name of the commissioner, Louise Lerche-Lerchenborg (Lerche means lark). Performing 0n this concert are David Broome (piano), Kate Dillingham (cello), and Thomas Piercy (clarinet).
