This island’s mine!

So speaks David Weigel, our Prospero, at the beginning of our dress rehearsal of Saariaho’s TEMPEST SONGBOOK. And indeed we felt like we were on an island tonight. A magical one, where a great composer was helping us understand visceral sound in the kindest way possible. One where we could work on expression and intention far from certain circuses. I cannot begin to put words to the gratitude I feel every day working on such music with such students and colleagues.

If you’re in Ann Arbor, come hear us tomorrow night – info is on my calendar page!

Here’s our group rocking it out, and my colleague Oriol getting inspired:img_0793 img_0791
