I was thrilled to invite Joan Tower to the NY Premiere of mutual friend Ellen Taaffe Zwilich’s “Millennium Fantasy” last evening–where she is a distinguished professor of composition. We had a drink after the concert and I had asked Joan if she was aware of sequenza21 and she was familiar with the site–I sent her the link with the hope that she night indeed become more acquainted. Joan is an amazing composer and human being–it would be nice to see her at sequenza21 sometime. The concert went well, in the wonderful Fisher Center at Bard–wild design! The “Millennium Fantasy” for me, has formally entered the repertoire–I hope more pianists and orchestras will enjoy programming it well into the 21st century.
