8 pm
Villa Musica

This was a small event for those of us interested in contemporary classical music.
Nathan Brock, Executive Director, is working to expand the interest in new music; good for him. Five pieces were performed in this nice venue (rather out in the boonies) with a great piano. Chris Adler, pianist, performed “Rain Tree Sketch 2” by Takemitsu, Eric Starr, trombonist, performed “Reservoir” by Matthew Vandergrift and Berio’s “Sequenza 5.” Stephanie Aston, soprano, sang “Lament of Osiris” by Elizabeth Latyens, and the program closed with a lovely piece, Messiaen’s “Poemes pour Mi” (1935) for voice and piano.
