Movements I and II are finished, copied, and ready for delivery. Tonight, I finished orchestrating Mvt. III, so all that remains is getting it into the computer and doing the parts – no small task. There are entirely too many notes in this movement…
Here’s me giving a video update on the piece earlier this evening:
Alchemy for orchestra update, April 19th, 2006 (Quicktime MOV, 1.2Mb)
The brand-new second mvt. is just under 11 minutes in length, which means the entire work is now approx. 25 minutes long. Rockin’.
I have to admit I’m really excited about this performance. If you’re anywhere near the NYC area on May 25th, please come to the show. It’s at Alice Tully Hall, and it’s free, but you will need a ticket from the Juilliard Box Office. They are available May 11th, and apparently they usually ‘sell out’ that same day (this is the annual Commencement concert the Juilliard Orchestra gives the night before graduation, so everyone’s parents and relatives are in town).
Anyway, I think it’s going to be quite a concert. Here’s the program and more info.
Must sleep now…
