Just a quick note here, to say that Persistence of the Blues, my new piece for TwoSense, the powerhouse duo of pianist Lisa Moore and cellist Ashley Bathgate (Bang on a Can) is finished. It’s a beast – a single movement, twenty minute virtuoso composition. I can’t tell you how eager I am to hear these stunning performers play (the hell out of) it! TwoSense will announce dates soon for a 2013 premiere and subsequent performances in New York, San Francisco and beyond.
Many thanks to the Barlow Endowment for Music Composition for commissioning this work.
