Dress Rehearsal for San Francisco Composers Chamber Orchestra Moving Day (yes, yes!), almost in program order, so
Sonata for Flute, Oboe, and Piano and Plan
Sprites, Michael Kimbell's Time Does Not Move (with marvelous narrator-poet Emmanuel Williams), Michael Cooke's Incomplete Thoughts: A Passacaglia (with a new, slower tempo in its 223 232 223 322 223 322 223 322 7/8 structure through 24 repetitions of its synthetic-scale bassline),
Martha Stoddard's Gait Changes,
Davide Verotta's Dances for Orchestra.
and all goes quite well, despite a few harrowing moments re late attendance. Previous to this, composition of page 6 of Six Enneads: IV, (also get word of the Awesome Orchestra's need for oboists and bassoons, to avoid cancellation of their reading of W.A. Mozart and John Williams, so spread the word and commit to it),
a buzz in
town (on this 44th day of summer, fourth above 90, tied for the highest temp of the year -- 93 -- with April 29),
including breaks (maybe... oh, yes, another controversy),
and the dark/light return.
