Adagio for String Quartet on December 20

A few weeks ago in New Jer­sey, when I pre­sented my lec­ture about the inter­dis­ci­pli­nary nature of cre­ativ­ity to a group of school chil­dren, I was asked which of my com­po­si­tions is my favorite. A tough ques­tion to answer! But I ulti­mately chose my Ada­gio for String Quartet.

And so I am delighted that the New York Com­posers Cir­cle will be pre­sent­ing this work on Decem­ber 20 at 8pm. The venue is the Saint Peter’s Church at Cit­i­group Cen­ter, 54th Street and Lex­ing­ton Avenue. One of the NYCC’s hon­orary mem­bers, Dinu Ghezzo, will be cel­e­brated as his 70th birth­day arrives, and there will also be a com­po­si­tion by no less than Elliott Carter on the bill. Other com­posers on the con­cert include Jacob E. Good­man, Mar­tin Halpern, Eugene McBride, and Gayther Myers.

And a recep­tion will fol­low. The sug­gested dona­tion is $20 and as always the con­cert promises to be a great one. More infor­ma­tion can be found by click­ing the flier or by click­ing here.
