This past weekend, the Round Rock Symphony, under the baton of Maestro Silas Huff, performed my This Day, This Dusk for orchestra. This young and energetic orchestra gave two very solid performances of my very difficult work in a program that included another world premiere by friend and colleague, Manly Romero, as well as Stravinski’s Firebird and Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet. This was no easy concert. In fact, I think this program would have been daunting to the best and most long-standing orchestras.
I’d like to congratulate all the players of the Round Rock Symphony for their commitment, energy, and strong musicality. And, thank you Maestro Huff for your wonderful leadership.
I should have a recording of the two concerts soon, and I’ll post the recordings to my “works list” page as soon as it is available.
