Uncovering What Is Brave: 2008 Generals Concert
8:00pm (live recording; seating until 8pm and during intermission only)
You Are Most Beautiful When... my live performance piece for the Composition Program's General Exams Concert. This concert promises to be a quite exciting affair, with each of us taking risks, and pushing forward our creativity with new works from my compatriot Graduate Fellows in Composition, Mark Dancigers, Anne Hege, and Andrea Mazzariello (as well as myself). Each of us has written work in response to a particular composer's work. My piece is a response to Der Doppelgänger by Austrian composer Franz Schubert (1797-1828) as performed by legendary contralto Marian Anderson and her long-time accompanist, pianist Franz Rupp. The theme of my response is gratitude, creative collaboration, and friendship, and features the "distinctive, rich, and compelling" voice of soprano Aurora Micu (replacing Boston Fielder), and the "...magical, something to celebrate..." pianist Francine Kay, along with other special virtual guests, and my first experimentation with a traditional libretto!
This is the second requirement of my 4-part General Exam. I hope to see you there!
