(Mar 24, 2008-- Bloggers Note: See the picture and review of this concert in the NY Times Mon, Mar 24, p E3!)
=>Back to the Met again on Thursday, March 27 at 7 PM for Vivaldi concertos with the fabulous flutist Paula Robison. Don't miss this as it is the last concert ever of Paula's series in the Temple of Dendur at the Met!!!
=>For all you downtown hipsters, I am playing two very cool shows at Issue Project Room in Brooklyn on March 28 and 29. I will be performing two brand new works by Elizabeth Brown with the Momenta quartet. One piece is for string quartet and theremin. This is the most fascinating instrument, manipulated through radio waves, and sounding eerily like a human voice. The music will be performed with a video installation by artist Lothar Osterberg. The other piece is for string quartet and shakuhachi, a Japanese recorder-like instrument with a deep, rich sound. It is very cool, and even worth the shlep to Brooklyn. (Just kidding, brooklynites!)
=>Finally, on April 13 I will be playing a recital with pianist Thomas Osuga presented by the Puffin Foundation in Teaneck, NJ. Works by Prokofiev, Schubert, and Bach.
