more happy news
« on: July 22, 2019, 08:08:11 PM »
My quintet for clarinet and strings, with narrator, will be getting its American premičre in late October (shortly before Halloween! how appropriate!), in Phoenix, Arizona.

I'm looking forward to hearing it with the alternate English narration!
And also looking forward to hearing someone else's take on the music.

Wonderful news!

Do they all belong to the same orchestra or did a quartet find a clarinetist...?

I don't know.
I believe it's a chamber music society, so maybe musicians from an orchestra who get together for chamber music concerts?

hehehe, thanks.
I'd love to get there for the concert, but I don't really have any spare money to travel these days.

but later today I'll post the English score, but with the live recording of the premiere in French.

thank-you all!

the score and all the parts are now in the mail, on their way to AZ.

I can hardly wait to see if the musicians will feel the need to contact me about anything.
