Adrian Knight: Performances in New York, Upcoming Long-Form Piano Composition

San Francisco's Mobius Trio, a classical guitar trio composed of Robert Nance, Mason Fish, and Matthew Holmes-Linder, is coming to New York to perform Adrian Knight's Bon Voyage, a work for three guitars that was composed specificaly for these players. The trio will perform this work in three venues: November 5th at Spectrum in Manhattan, November 6th at Shapeshifter Lab in Brooklyn, and November 7th at Van Dyke Park (AKA New Amsterdam Records' space in Brooklyn). Check out a video of them performing this work on some beautiful, vintage guitars: 

Also, be on the lookout for a new, long-form composition for Piano by Adrian Knight, commissioned by pioneering new music pianist R. Andrew Lee. The piece is a result of Lee's commissioning project for new works "of considerable duration" by Knight and Randy Gibson. The new work is set to be performed at the Wayward Music Series in Seattle, WA, in 2015, and will also make its way to the East coast. Lee said he was inspired by Knight's composition Unruhe, from his 2008 Ricky Bruch Album. Check it out here:   

The Living Earth Show Perform Knight, Andres on New CD

Adrian Knight and Timo Andres are among several composers whose works have been recently recorded by The Living Earth Show, a San Francisco-based duo of guitarist Travis Andrews and percussionist Andrew Meyerson. Their new CD, High Art, was released on Innova on November 19th, and includes Knight's "Family Man" and Andres' "You Broke It, You Bought It." Already well-reviewed by the SF Examiner and written up in the San Fransisco Classical Voice, the album is The Living Earth Show's recording debut; they have performed the works of Knight, Andres, and others across the country since 2012. Check out the video for "Family Man" below: 

Knight's works on PSNY for guitar include "Bon Voyage" (three guitars) and "Daedaldualism" (guitar, synthesizer, and electronics); other electro-acoustic works include "The Tears" (harp, live electronics) and "Vain Attempts" (piano, electronics). Andres' works on PSNY with percussion include "Crashing Through Fences" (piccolo, glockenspiel, two bass drums) and "Trade Winds" (bass clarinet, piano, percussion, string quartet).  

New Works from Pierre Jalbert, Bruce MacCombie, and Kamran Ince

For some composers, summer is a time to relax in preparation for the oncoming concert season--but for our PSNY composers and staff, the summer season has been extremely busy! We're pleased to announce that Pierre Jalbert'sSonata for Marimba, commissioned in 2001 by percussionist Makoto Nakura, is now available through PSNY. Jalbert's writing for marimba can also be heard in his Concerto for Marimba and Orchestra. NewMusicBox did an interview with Jalbert on his expansive writing style for different instruments, viewable here: 

We're also happy to announce the availablity of two works for guitar by Bruce MacCombie: Lyric Variations and Tango Ambrosium. Both works pay homage to Latin American composers, particularly Astor Piazzola. We're happy to add more works for guitar to our repertoire, and we hope you add these works to yours!

Since its premiere in 2010, Kamran Ince's Far Variations has been performed across the country-- and, newly available on PSNY, we hope to see it performed around the world! This Piano Quartet was written with trans-national longing in mind: the state of being far from home. Ince's signature melding of Western and Turkish traditions shines in this piece. And for violinists and pianists interested in Ince's work, be sure to check out Ince's newly-published Koçekçe, for violin and piano, now available through Hal Leonard.
