Hi everyone. Last night marked the finale of the PSU 2010 Composition Competition. All three pieces in contention were played well. Patrick Csak was chosen as the winner this year.
Despite not being chosen as the winner, I was very proud at the quality of the ensemble after only four rehearsals. If you would like to hear the recording, go here, where I have put up the mp3 and a PDF that you can follow along with.
Too bad I can’t have the piece played on my recital. That would save me an extra five minutes of writing. Hah.
Also, in light of it being April fools day, NPR ran a spot about classical music that included jokes. If you’d like to hear it, check it out here, and click on the “listen to this story” link.
