My piece Palimpsest for the JACK Quartet will be performed at this year’s Sweet Thunder Festival (hosts Rand Steiger and Steven Schick), April 24-27, 2014. The SF Chronicle calls the new festival ““An enticing-looking four-day extravaganza of modern and new music, ranging from established masters to up-and-coming composers.”. The 2014 festival includes JACK, the International Contemporary Ensemble, and composers Morton Subotnick, Ken Ueno, Rand Steiger, Roger Reynolds, and Pamela Z, among others.
Works on the JACK performance included Turgut Ercetin’s String Quartet No. 1; my Palimpsest, the West Coast premiere of Natacha Diels’ Nightmare for JACK, and in a tribute to the late Jonathan Harvey, a performance of his String Quartet No. 4.
