Looking forward to a week of amazing projects surrounding Thanksgiving, rehearsing and recording some of my all-time favorite music. Headed to Cambridge on Tuesday for the first part of a class at Harvard where I will be rehearsing and performing a new work, “TED”, by Rick Burkhardt (with Eric Wubbels on piano). The class gives students a view into the process of creating new musical work, a wonderful concept! And this piece is going to be a memorable one – a contemporary violin/piano duet combined with a TED Talk and chanted pseudo-folklore.
After that, honored to be committing Eric Wubbels’ incredible duo for violin and piano to record at Patrick Higgins’ beautiful Future-Past Studios in Hudson, NY. We will be recording to tape in an acoustically impeccable space on a vintage piano over several days. The final product will eventually be released on vinyl on Carrier Records. Can’t wait to get started!
