Carnegie Hall premiere

no photoshopping here..!

Quoted from Press release

The Houston Symphony announces Carnegie Hall as the second stop for the world-premiere event, The Planets—An HD Odyssey, a newly commissioned project of the Symphony. On January 28, 2010, Carnegie Hall will present the Symphony under the baton of Music Director Hans Graf in a program that culminates with Gustav Holst’s beloved The Planets and a high-definition, state-of-the-art film by celebrated producer/director Duncan Copp.

I’ve written a Prelude – The Launch of Cassini which opens the film.

I’m very excited about this. I’ve played in Carnegie Hall, but have never had anything presented there before. The Holst is such an incredible piece that I’m steering clear of its orchestration and soundworld and going heavily into harmonics and string overtones.

I may put a sneak peek here soon. Needless to say, it’s going to have a lot of cellos in it…

    Gotta love those cellos 😉 Congratulations!
    (Speaking of cello) Is there any way for me to get a copy of “Woodwork”? It is such a great piece!
