I thought I would cross post this here.

I can't imagine the commanding respect Pierre Boulez had from the modern composer of his time to get all these folks together in the same place at the same time.

https://slippedisc.com/2021/06/23-us-composers-at-pierre-boulezs-last-concert/

Daniel Plante
Love in the Asylum
NY Philharmonic - Pierre Boulez
(1977)

Plante made some posts on Slipped Disc the other day, where he identified the contemporary composers in the picture below, including himself. So, I thought I would track down his odd, 8-minute cantata Love in the Asylum, based on a Dylan Thomas poem.

Here it is for the listening: https://soundcloud.com/daniel-plante-511223801/plante-love-in-the-asylum-1977-02-04-sylvan-ny-phil-boulez

Sorry about that. Boulez is of course on the far right.

A quote from the comments section of the article from Daniel Plante:

Quote
Row 1: [Milton Babbitt, not shown] Lucia Dlugoszewski, Ulysses Kay, George Rochberg, [and in the empty seat, Mario Davidovsky sat down shortly after this was taken.]
Row 2: [David Gilbert, not shown] Stephen Jablonski, Jacob Druckman, Roger Sessions, William Schuman, and Aaron Copland.
Row 3: Donald Martino, Donald Harris, Daniel Plante (me, the kid not wearing a tie), Morton Gould, Vincent Persichetti, and Roy Harris.
Row 4: [Charles Wuorinen, Carman Moore, Sidney Hodkinson, David Del Tredici not shown] Earle Brown, Harley Gaber, Stanley Silverman, John Cage, and Elliott Carter.

Great shot !
Thanks VonStupp  :)

(Milton Babbitt appears well at the bottom left, but not Charles Wuorinen indeed)

I have heard of/acquainted with some of the composers/compositions.  So were you really there (wasn't certain whether or not you might be joking, no insult intended)?!  If so, pretty cool!  Are you a composer yourself?  Or how did you end up being there?  :)

Best wishes,

Steve Reich is in Row 4. He’s standing next to Earle Brown.

I wish! No, that was from this article: https://slippedisc.com/2021/06/23-us-composers-at-pierre-boulezs-last-concert/

Daniel Plante (the young guy in the white shirt) is listing off the composers from that article. It was his music I was searching for: https://soundcloud.com/daniel-plante-511223801/plante-love-in-the-asylum-1977-02-04-sylvan-ny-phil-boulez

Gotcha!  Sorry, I had misunderstood the posting.  What an interesting gathering though!!!!  Even in terms of the composers whose music I know to various extents.  Pretty cool!  I'll check out your link later....very busy day here.  :)

Best wishes,
