60 Seconds of Fame – 15th May
Violinist Conway Kuo (pictured) is to play my Étude in Glissandi at a concert in New York on the 15 May, part of the Vox Novus Fifteen Minutes of Fame concert series. Conway, the Associate Principal Second Violin of the New York City Ballet Orchestra and a First Violinist with the New York City Opera Orchestra, will perform 15 solo violin works consecutively, all under 60 seconds in length. You can read more about Conway, the concert and the other composers here.
Incidentally, if you want to listen to some of my music (and can’t get yourself to New York for 60 seconds of it), I’ve set up a new Audio page. This page hosts six recordings at a time so you can get straight to what I most want you to hear (and avoid wading through the rest)…a kind of ‘greatest hits’ compilation if you like. Of course, if you fancy hearing other things, recordings of many other pieces are still available at the Works List. To celebrate, here’s a brand new recording of Agape Aria, played by Manchester University’s Vaganza and York University’s Chimera Ensemble last month:[audio:http://www.tomcoult.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/04/Agape%20Aria.mp3|titles=Tom Coult – Agape Aria]
