The NYC heat shows no signs of abating, so I’ve decided to stay inside and tend to this small online garden.
First off: the initial crop of 2018–19 events are up, including the premieres of new pieces for the Calder Quartet and Philharmonisches Orchester Cottbus. (Between that and a visit to the Elbphilharmonie with Theo Bleckmann, I’ll spending a weird amount of time in Germany this year.) My work on Sufjan Stevens’s yet-to-be-titled ballet is drawing to a close (so that Justin Peck’s can begin); that piece goes up January 31.
There are some new occupants of the Works section—most excitingly, a wonderful recording of my new Piano Trio from its premiere this summer at Ravinia. I also recently posted a present for my fellow pianists—a one-piano transcription of Schumann’s Canonic Études (you can download a PDF score for free). As far as I’m aware, this is the only such transcription of the piece that’s publicly available; Piotr Anderszewski recorded his own version on this album.
