For the Under Construction Reading Series I intend to continue my search for a new musical language, test my artistic ideas, and last but not least, have a priceless dialogue with the musicians about both the artistic and the pragmatic side of orchestral writing, during this rare and extraordinary opportunity of workshopping an orchestral work. I hope the piece will be direct, compelling and virtuosic, expressing an individual’s voice in today’s flood of choices, with today’s speed and spectacle, but as clear as a PowerPoint presentation and from a very personal and intimate perspective. Music, like life, is all about finding your way through difficult situations: the more challenging it becomes, the more rewarding the results. I’d like to hear that in music.
