Friday June 10, 2016 - Fair Lawn
This evening Palisades Virtuosi premiered its 75th New Work for flute, clarinet & piano at the Fair Lawn Community Center. Composer Roger Stubblefield's "Fire Diamond" Opus 18 was a rousing success. A programmatic work following a legend of the composer's own imagination moved from majestic to pensive, then to an exhilarating finale. Also on the program, Matthew Baier's "Syzygy", a transcription commissioned by PV in 2005 which is a fascinating and dance-like 12-tone work soon to be recorded on PV's New American Masters, Volume 6. Here are photos from the evening.
