Zina Ward, oboe; Elizabeth Irvin, horn; Katie Palmer, cello; David Kechley, bass
January 7, 2010
This piece was written for a concert titled “Young Americans” and curated by Williams colleagues Brian Simalchik and Alex Creighton. The program emphasized NOW Ensemble composers such as Snider and Mazzoli, and Brian and Alex wrote pieces for the concert also in an indie-classical vein. You can hear some awareness of this context in The Scope of Another, and you can also hear real contrapuntal drive.
