$6

Chimera - a mythical beast combining different animal parts into something monstrous - is the title of my new work for haegeum and cello.  It's my third chamber work combining gugak instruments, from traditional Korean music, with Western instruments.  I composed it for two superstars - Soo Yeon Lyuh and Ashley Bathgate - and it's become the cornerstone of a new repertory, as they have recruited more composers to the cause.  This concert will mark the premieres of five new…

Yoonie Han brings her signature performance of my piano suite Sargent's Women to the Morgan Library and Museum to mark the exhibition John Singer Sargent: Portraits in Charcoal.  I will join her onstage to discuss the alchemical process through which visual art - three of Sargent's images of iconic women - can become music. For the occasion, Ms. Han's outstanding group the Gloriosa Trio will also perform - music of Faure and Debussy.  It promises to be a magical evening.

While Composer-in-Residence with the South Dakota Symphony I volunteered to make a chamber orchestra arrangement of "Amazing Grace" to accompany the Creekside Singers, a traditional drum group (four men singing in unison and together beating one large drum).  I wrote about the experience here.  My arrangement was first performed in March 2019 on a Lakota Music Project concert in Sioux Falls.  It's back, scaled down to a nonet, on two concerts presented in Washington DC as part of Post Classical…

After the exhilaration of composing and hearing Nonghyun, my quintet for gayageum with string quartet, I wanted to try my hand at solo gayageum music.  Gayageum is a traditional Korean zither with a large repertory of music in different styles.  I composed for sanjo gayageum, the traditional 12-string instrument, and produced Four Little Pieces for Gayageum in four different styles.  I am thrilled that HyoJin Kang will premiere the group.  She very generously assisted me in the technical details of…
