In other news, my ‘Étude in Glissandi‘ will receive two performances in Romania next week, courtesy of the Vox Novus Composers Voice concert series. It was performed in that series in New York by Conway Kuo in May, and will now be performed by Daniel Mihai at the National College of Art ‘Regina Maria’, Constanta on the 1st November and the George Enescu University of Music, Bucharest on the 3rd.
