One of the ancillary benefits of teaching is the pleasure of insight you get into the unfolding of musical minds, watching one young composer after another take wing. I’ve been especially fortunate these last two years to watch the development of Nick Rich, who has his Master’s recital this Saturday night. If you want to hear a truly beautiful and imaginative take on what a string quartet is capable of, check out his Songs at Sunset here.
For his recital, Nick has not only pulled together the usual assortment of performing friends, but has three guest ensembles lined up. Here is the program:
I gotta use words
Cool Clear Water
Rewind You, Rewind Me
UNC School of the Arts, Watson Hall, 7:30 pm, March 1.
