Leaving town tomorrow for a three-stop tour of sorts. First, it’s University of Notre Dame for the première of Austerity Measures, a 25-minute quartet for Third Coast Percussion. I’ve written briefly about the piece here.
Next I’m meeting Gabe(riel Kahane) in Vancouver for two nights on the Push Festival, presented by Music On Main. We’ll be doing our two pianos/song and dance routine, featuring our own music alongside songs and pieces by Britten, Ives, Adès, Norman, Schumann, Schubert, and Bach.
And finally to Boston, to witness Kirill Gerstein at Jordan Hall. He’ll be playing my Old Friend, as well as music by upstarts Modest Mussorgsky and Robert Schumann. It’s the Boston première!
