Triad sings my new choral piece "Sing Child"

01.11.2016 Новости

A new piece that I wrote for Triad: Boston's Choral Collective will premiere on November 19 and 20.

"Sing Child" will be the opening work in this concert, titled 'Music for a Lifetime'.  The text is made up of single words or short phrases that evoke a sensation or activity in the life of a child, and the music evokes the hazy, suspended quality that I remember about my own childhood. I think the effect is a bit like Terry Riley's "In C" or perhaps some of the music of Ligeti that involves tone clusters, though my piece is written completely in a synthetic mode and is more or less tonal.

Triad is a group (based in Cambridge Massachusetts) of about 18 professional singers, many of whom are conductors and composers. I very much look forward to their performance of my piece.
