Elements III: Andrew Griffin

This concert is about centering both my performing and composing colleagues as central relationships to the Elements that make up my musical life. Today’s entry is focused on “Prelude for Solo Piano” by Andrew Griffin. I met Andrew when we were both freshman at Carnegie Mellon studying music performance. Besides playing memorable orchestra concerts around the city as well as at Heinz Hall, Severance Hall in Cleveland and the Kennedy Center in DC (including a stop at Watergate hotel and ensuing all-night bus back to class the next day), I had the honor of premiering Andrew’s Atlantic Concerto for Bass Clarinet in 2007. Andrew’s sensitive musicianship translates to his composition chops, and I’m thrilled to feature his work on this Friday’s concert – Elements III
