New Work: What Is Amazing
‘Twas the day after Christmas and I didn’t want to feel like I was wasting my life, so I wrote a little piece. What Is Amazing sets a wonderful poem in four parts by Heather Christle for soprano with two violins and tuba (an obvious combination). Not my greatest work, and does not quite make my selected works list, but it has got its moments. Also I like that it was composed entirely with pencil on paper, because it is nice to be old-fashioned sometimes.
You know what is good? An old-fashioned. I didn’t know that until this year. Thanks, Elise!
