I’m super excited that the blog I write for, I Care If You Listen, has asked me to review Joel Sachs’ book Henry Cowell: A Man Made of Music. Awaiting the official review copy, and eagerly anticipating re-reading the book a couple times and sharing a little of what makes this book so special with you.
In other news, I’ll be playing Exultation (a perennial favorite) in a faculty “special appearance” on a student recital for the music school I teach at. I’m guessing it will be the first Cowell most of the audience (students, parents, and guests) has ever heard. Perhaps I can pass on to someone else my love of this music. Hey, it happened to me – what’s to stop it happening to someone else 🙂
Still chipping away slooooooowly with the Complete Cowell project, my progress has slowed a little due to a super hectic schedule (9 jobs plus some serious martial arts training). But fear not, I am still working away!
