My piece will be sharing the roster with works by George Perle, Paul Lansky, and David Schober (very good company indeed...). It would be great to see you there!

The concert will be honoring the late influential composer George Perle by presenting his masterwork Sonata a Quattro and selections of Thirteen Dickinson Songs, and also works by composers he influenced. Among them is French composer André Brégégère’s Vol de nuit inspired by and dedicated to George Perle. Works of two former Perle students will complete the program: Odd Moments for Pierrot ensemble by Paul Lansky, Professor of Music at Princeton University; Three Settings of Yi Chi-Whan and Variations for Pierrot ensemble and percussion - which will assure a bracing ending of the evening - by David Schober, Assistant Professor for Music Theory and Composition at the Aaron Copland School of Music.

Lunatics at Large, called “young, energetic and finely polished” by Allan Kozinn of the New York Times (http://www.nytimes.com/2009/05/20/arts/music/20luna.html) is committed to working with living composers and to commissioning new pieces for its expanded Pierrot instrumentation. In thematic concerts, the group’s programs juxtapose standard repertoire and established composers of the 20th century with more recent works. Lunatics at Large also embraces collaborative projects with artists from other media, such as the upcoming Sanctuary Project: a series of multi-disciplinary performances, with an opening concert at Carnegie Hall, will feature collaborative works of five poets and five composers commissioned to explore the universal, yet personal theme Sanctuary in words and sounds.

Lunatics at Large’s concert activities are made possible through generous donations of private donors. To support Lunatics at Large and its projects, please visit: https://www.fracturedatlas.org/site/contribute/donate/2857
