a message from Gene Pritsker
It's been a busy start to the season. Composers Concordance jumped into it with a great fundraiser/party at MC gallery and then immediately our first concert - at BWAC.
We have many concerts planned for the this year - including our big festival 'Timbre Tantrums' and other concerts being planned now, including a big one at the 92nd St. Y - 'Eclectic Bands/Eclectic Dance' in March.
NEXT concert is: C&C PIANO FACTORY on Oct. 13th in partnership with Composers Collaborative inc.
On Thursday, October 10th my interview with The Brothers Balliett on WQXR's - Q2 station
Listen at 3pm & 8PM here: http://www.wqxr.org/#!/programs/balliett/ - It was a really fun interview with Doug and Brad and I got to play a bunch of my music for them and music of my colleagues.
I will be starting work orchestrating a new Netflix series directed by the the Wachowski's (The Matrix Trilogy, Speed Racer) next month called 'Sense 8' with music by Heil, Klimek and Tykwer. My Cloud Atlas Symphony will be performed around the world by various orchestras in Shanghai, Beijing, Tokyo, London (proms), Copenhagen, Leipzig.
