April 23 - The Monterey Way
Down to Carmel with Harriet to give a pre-concert lecture on
Black Angels before a
Kronos Quartet concert at the
Sunset Center at the invitation of
Natalie and company.
So down we go, past the flowery
Coast Ranges and
sand dunes to the
Peninsula, early enough to take the drive past
Cypress (cue the Rossini).
There's also time to check out
The Grill before the
presenting George's work in context and situ (lots of enthusiasm from audience), before the
where the quartet tops even its older renditions of
same (including the evocative mysteries of God Music, above). Home in the late hours. Somewhere earlier in the day, subsequent pages (6 and 10) of the orchestration for Creation: II and compostion re Vespers: VI. were also done, as well as a bit of update for the Crumb section of markalburgermusichistory.blogspot.com.
