Back in October (was it?) when I was a ringer in the Cantata Singers concert which included the Pärt Adam’s Lament, one of the singers, on learning that I am a composer, told me that David Hoose (director of the C. S.) is also the conductor for the Collage New Music Ensemble.  I more or less promptly forgot all about that (busy time of year as it was, made a bit busier by Wednesday evening C. S. rehearsals).  But I made note of it!  And this week, I found the sheet of paper on which I made that note . . . .

The Collage NME concert just past (15 Jan!) featured a soprano, so I had the happy thought – since I want discreetly to remind David that I invite his thoughts on the Op.92 Passion – of sending him the score of the Op.129.

Anyway . . . we shall see.

Separately: So very much gimmickry in the Arts scene. Market dynamics, I suppose: gimmickry trumps excellence.

So my work for today is done.

Okay – so, what’s new (which you cannot see, because I am holding off before posting an updated score)?

(1) I felt that the metrical retransition at [ M ] was just a shade too abrupt, so I’ve repaired that.
(2) While not absolutely a ‘flaw’ as (1) arguably was, I similarly felt that I wanted to hear the brass chord at m.199 a little elongated (is “elongated” all right to use figuratively?)

I am now perfectly happy with those emendations, and thus with the entire movement thus far, and in my estimation the ending will not disappoint–I only need to ‘fill in’ the double-reeds for the last ten measures, and the remaining winds and the non-bass strings for (I think) the last two measures (I think having them drop out for the two measures prior to the last two mm. will be tout comme il faut).

Okay, that did not perturb me at all, as it seemed all part of the basic "drive" of the movement, but I await the final judgment!  $:) ;)

Just submitted the first movement of the symphony to this.  Recall that nothing doing was the response to Discreet Erasures, so hopes are not exactly high.

But, you don't get rejected if you don't apply . . . .

No reason not to trot this out, at last:

And:  I have given the score (hard copy, by hand) to a Boston conductor.  So, the process has begun.

And:  I have given the score (hard copy, by hand) to a Boston conductor.  So, the process has begun.

This is a wonderful story (even if nothing should come of it).  Early Thursday, when the piece was nearly done, I wrote to Stephen Symchych, a violinist who has played some Henningmusick in times past, to share the (imminent) news, and to ask if he knew any conductor(s) who might be interested.  He mentioned two (one of whom has decamped to the west coast).

Last night, the Greater Boston Choral Consortium had a "Speed Dating" networking event, and I had registered to attend as a member of Triad.  Yesterday, as I thought, I don't know just whom I might meet at this event;  would it not be on the pathetic side if, when I say, "You know, I've just written a symphony," and the other party says, "Really? May I see it?" . . . on the pathetic side, if I don't have a copy with me?

So I brought two hard copies, not really expecting that there would be anyone to give either of them, but not wanting to be empty-handed.  And lo! whom should I meet last night, but the very conductor yet in the Boston area whom Stephen named in his message of Thursday.  So, he was impressed by the fact that I had just written a symphony, and possibly further impressed by the fact that I had a score to pass across the table to him.  He leafed a bit through it as the conversation went on, his face was not easy to read.  When the bell rang to announce the next stage of the "Speed Dating," he closed the score respectfully, and started to proffer it towards me, but I welcomed him to take it with him and examine at his ease.

I followed up with an email message to the address available at his website.  And . . . we shall see.


In chat with Charles Turner (the other Triad member there) immediately after, he said, "Fortune favors the prepared.  You were ready with that score."

Dr. Karl Henning, please also write an autobiography one day! That is a really cool story and I really can't wait to read about how everything turns out with this symphony of yours!

Revisiting the first movement as I continue work on the second.  I sure do enjoy this piece . . . I want to finish writing it, so that I can play it   8)

I'll need to modify m.37, of course, otherwise the pianist would need a third hand  ;)

Monday evening was the initial/organizational meeting of an experimental music group organized by Pam Marshall (a k a rl h e nn i ng Ensemble stalwart) and fellow composer Charles Turner (of the now-probably-defunct 9th Ear).  I can see that there needed to be chat at the outset, but I could have done with starting to actually play sooner – I certainly needed to duck out early, because I have early mornings.  Experimental scores, frequently a kind of guided improvisation, it was all fun as I had anticipated;  and probably everyone who took part felt it was worthwhile.  All things running even, I should be happy to become a part of the endeavor, as long as not much energy beyond musical rehearsal and performance is required of me.

My Problem is, I already have Thursday evenings out for HTUMC choir rehearsal, and (at least 20 weeks out of the season) Monday evenings dedicated to Triad.  I am not at all looking for a third weeknight where I am out – three nights taken away from my own creative work, plus the interference with my beauty rest before I need to report to work for The Man, is more disruption in my routine than I am willing to accept.

On that theme, Monday night’s rest was sufficiently curtailed, that yesterday was more of a Zombie Tuesday than I quite like, partly for the downstream effect of my having no juice last night for work on the Clarinet Sonata.  (I did, however, get some nominal work on a piece for my handbell choir, because I do need to have at least two new pieces in their folders for our Back-to-Work rehearsal after church this Sunday coming.)

So, we shall see about the as-yet-unchristened ex. mus. gr.

As I review the first movement, and what is at present written of the second, of the Clarinet Sonata, though, I am highly enthusiastic and motivated.
