The CanAm Piano Duo is in town for a concert this Tuesday night. They’ll be playing John Corigliano’s Kaleidoscope, but the real attraction for me will be the premiere of Dak Van Vranken’s Lights on the Water. Dak is a sophomore here, studying with Kenneth Frazelle.
In other news, I’ve completed Rapid Eye and mailed it off to the Carpe Diem String Quartet. Since it’s the sixth and final work in a cycle I’ve been working on since 1998, I have even more heavily mixed emotions than I usually have when finishing a major work. Maybe I will be able to address those feelings in a meaningful way in some later post, but I’m not making any promises. It may be best, after all, to stick to making music.
