Ives and a new, American music
Composers in their own words, pt. 2: John Corigliano


Aha! I misunderstood. That is aclatuly a very astute observation I totally took it the wrong way. I remember the ghastly post John Adams had on his blog where he was sitting in the audience during a performance of City Noir and seemed rather put out that the people sitting next to him DIDN'T EVEN KNOW WHO HE WAS! Was I supposed to feel sorry for him? Was he was having a moment of clarity in which he saw that there were, in fact, people who lived their lives unaware of his existence? Dude, I teach freshman theory: I have plenty of students who are totally unaware of my existence.Thanks for the comments and kind words. I'm really stoked about the gig!
