I’m very excited for tomorrow night’s free Poisson Rouge ICElab concert with the brilliantly intuitive composer and percussionist Nathan Davis. It’ll feature The Bright and Hollow Sky, written for the group three years ago and, among our people at least, already a classic. Rebekah Heller creates sounds never before heard on the bassoon with On Speaking a Hundred Names, and I’ll play and conduct the premiere piece with soprano Tony Arnold and the ensemble, On the Nature of Thingness, from which the title of this post comes. Come one come all.
In other news, the new solo disc of Schumann and Busoni is done, at long last. Stay tuned for its actual physical appearance in two weeks.
