NOW SOUNDing @ ROUND 2020
Five soundings of works by fantastic composers whose music has not been featured previously on NewMusicWorks programs:
David Behrman, Bryce Dessner, Carleton Macy, Paul Simon and the late György Ligeti,
Season 41 began on intimate terms, on a September afternoon at a private residence in South Santa Cruz County. The recital – Secret Lives of a Piano-featured virtuoso pianist Sarah Cahill, performing on a vintage 1868, nine-foot Steinway grand piano that was owned – and treasured – by the four composers who were featured in the program: Percy Grainger, Henry Cowell, Lou Harrison, andPhilip Collins.
The afternoon was embellished further by savory hors d’oeuvres, compliments of Chocolate Restaurant.
The whole of it, sponsored by Hill Guitar Company.
