San Diego Élan
Posted on 21 January 2011
I got to dip my toes in the (very cold) Pacific ocean for the first time a few days ago, after going to San Diego to attend the premiere of my new piece The Eye of Night played by the Myriad Trio as part of the Art of Elan series (they will be giving a repeat performance at UCSD in February).
I was given a very warm welcome by my generous host Gordon Brodfuehrer, (who had helped commission the piece); and saw performances by LA Phil/Dudamel on Saturday, and of Lang Lang with the San Diego Symphony on Sunday.
Below is the first movement of the piece, which was indeed performed with élan by the Myriad Trio, the rest of the piece is available to listen to here
