CD release concert, now putting a different hat on :)
But all in all I am quite satisfied with the result of my new pieces, and I have a good ground to develop my works further. I created three short pieces at IRCAM, sort of in preparation for my new duo work with cellist Joel Krosnick, the cellist of the Juilliard String Quartet.
At the moment, what am I doing? I am studying Just Intonation, since now I will be wearing a different 'hat', an "interpreter" hat, performing next month in Germany with Hamburg Symphony as a soloist, for John Adams' "The Dharma at the Big Sur" (2003). I'm studying the solo part, and trying to get my ears into Just Intonation mode. It is quite ideosincratic I think, if it is done right.... Anyway I like learning something that I haven't heard nor can create on my own, getting into the head-space of someone else's creative mind. It is thrilling.
