Works by the Berkshire based composer and photographer Stephen Dankner will be peroformed at the Clark Art Institute.
My upcoming performance, "A CONCERT OF THREE STRING QUARTET PREMIERES", which was generously funded in part by many of you last summer via a kickstarter crowdsourcing campaign, will finally become a reality on Sunday, October 12, 3:00 p.m. when the fabulous Dover String Quartet - resident quartet at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia and First Prize winners in the 2013 Banff International String Quartet Competition - will give the premiere performances of my Quartets Nos. 14, 16 and 17. Please mark your calendars.
The venue is the spectacularly re-designed Clark Art Institute, located at 225 South Street, in Williamstown Massachusetts.
These three new works, all composed in 2012-'13, represent a cross section of my musical style, with elements of romantic melody, jazz and popular styles and modernism. I hope you'll find the musical mix to be intriguing, captivating, and I dare say... beautiful.
The concert is free and should last about 90 minutes.
I hope you can make it; it will be very meaningful for me to see you there.
Please read the attached press release for the details.
Thank you for your support of my music, and I extend all my best wishes to you for a great fall foliage season and beyond!
