January 30 - How It Is
Yet a third recommend, now for Chase Buestad, re St. Mary's, plus page 16 of Vespers of 2010 composed, then in
towards Diablo Valley College to finally make slightly slower versions of Sex and the Bible re Dinah, Potiphar's Wife, and Pharaoh Had a Dream.
Back in the car, now city-wise for the
premiere of a
new chamber orchestra version of Alban Berg's Wozzeck, surprisingly fully-bodied, and fully professional,
with a cast including John Duykers and
Michael Desnoyers (Haemon for last season's Antigone), a
presentation of the 20th Century's greatest
opera, from beginning
end (with a review soon in 21st-Century Music [online at 21st-centurymusic.blogspot.com and 21st-centurymusic.com]),
with violinist Monika Gruber (SFCCO) and clarinetist Peter Josheff (SFCO / Goat Hall Productions) in the pit -- greeting the latter two after the impressive show.
