As I said in my last post, tonight we have our end-of-the-year student composers concert. Much rehearsing has been done, with one more dress rehearsal left, starting just a few hours from now.
All of which means I can’t be there when the Daedalus Quartet gives the NY premiere of my fourth string quartet tomorrow. Didn’t even know it was happening until I read about it in the New York Times.
Meanwhile, the Washington Post has checked in with a complimentary perspective on my fifth quartet. Read all about it.
I told a friend that I had been the beneficiary of an unusual amount of kindness from the press lately. His response was to assure me that kindness had nothing to do with it. In his words, “There are special dictionaries printed for newsrooms that are missing the word.”
