Just a note that the pianist in the ensemble has acknowledged receipt of the score with a nice message. Here's hoping the soprano is fearless!
Well, if she's anything like this singer (and operatic character), all should go well.  :) ;)

Veramente!

I've now delivered the parts (just three: flute, clarinet & cello) the pianist will play from score, and the soprano will sing from score, of course.

Great news, Karl!

So, any idea when and how you will be able to have a performance of your new work?  And, by the way, what are you calling it?

Oh! The Opus 172 is The Orpheus of Lowell, on texts of Jack Kerouac, for soprano, flute (doubling alto flute) clarinet (doubling bass clarinet) cello & piano, and it will be performed 7 Oct as part of the Lowell Celebrates Kerouac do.

Just got a lovely message from the pianist: I really like your new piece, and I think it is a very effective setting of Kerouac's text.
