A new piece for Dawn

Posted on Saturday, February 14, 2009



The Chamber Music Society of the Lincoln Center have given me the great honour of commissioning a new piece for the opening gala concert of their 2009 season, in the newly revamped Alice Tully Hall. The piece will be a new song cycle, continuing my collaboration with Dawn Upshaw, who will be accompanied by a jaw-dropping collection of some of the world's finest chamber musicians, including three dear friends from recent years, Avi Avital, Bridget Kibbey, and Todd 'Gumboots' Palmer. As I discovered in the Groanbox concert, making music amongst friends is both an exceptional pleasure, and also an inspiration.

A further exciting development for this project is that I've been talking with the supremely talented and original writer Aimee Bender about writing these songs, and she's gamely launched into a collaboration process with me, of which more soon. Read my mini-introduction to Aimee's work here.
