March has been unusually busy, but some great things have come up: a tour with the amazing Amy Williams for her Cage prepared-piano project, which brought us to Boston and North Carolina, with Chicago dates to follow; and last weekend, a gig with the Philharmonic. Dohnányi was conducting. I had seen him many times in Cleveland when I was at Oberlin, and I still maintain a deep respect. It was really great to see him work from the other side.
I’m also hard at work editing Xenakis for ICE’s latest release on Mode Records, and I’m immersing myself in Kaija Saariaho’s music again, with many projects this spring and summer: ICE portraits in New York and Boston, and the New York premiere of Émilie, at this summer’s Lincoln Center Festival, for which I’ll be working one-on-one with Elizabeth Futral.
