Premiering Solo Percussion Suite: Twelve Months in Minnesota
January 23, 2020 @ 9:15 PM - 10:30 PM UTC-6
At his recital, great percussionist Dave Hagedorn will premiere my solo percussion suite, Twelve Months in Minnesota.
When I moved to Northfield from Brooklyn, New York in 2016, I was fascinated by Minnesota’s vibrant nature. Summer is colorful and brilliant, and winter is very cold but beautiful. The night is dark I cannot see my feet on my way home walking, but I see many stars when I look up. The sunrise and sunset are breathtakingly magical, and clouds are often in some interesting shapes, so I can watch them for a long time.
This piece contains 12 movements inspired by each month of the year in Minnesota, and I tried to capture the moments I cut out from the year. It has been a great journey to complete this piece working closely with Dave Hagedorn since this is my first try to write a solo percussion work.
I deeply thank the Jerome Fund for New Music (JFund) and the American Composers Forum for supporting my new work.
