Thoughts from Ed Harsh…

We’re lucky to have Ed Harsh, president of Meet The Composer, with us for these readings. Aside from giving time for individual consultations with each of the particiapnt composers in this reading, he’s also tweeting about his experience hearing each of these new works as they roar through the hall. You can follow him here:

Here are a few of his reactions from hearing Jeremy Podgursky’s Our Bliss, It Comes in Waves conducted by Delta David Gier:

-Pungent brass and bell scrambles vs. silences. Sustained strings transmute to smears of sliding color
Shimmer and scramble again, two restrained roars. Chroma and economy
Delta David Gier on podium: an image of assurance and commitment. Attending to details, elegantly bringing out the music
