Hi loves. This recording is the fantastic Boston Modern Brass performing Seven Shades of Blue at the Equilibrium Concert Series in 2015. Check it out! Also check out the history and score of the piece under the Chamber Music section of the site.
I'm opening up a store for all you lovely humans to acquire things from me! The page is up on the site as a teaser - more details to come! Feel free to message me with questions or ideas you'd like to put forth!
Objective and perceptive review from the Marion Sentinel:
...this piece also disappeared at the end – into whispers of wind. That set up the world premiere of “Dust” by Kevin Joest, the winner of Sine Nomine’s composition contest last fall. Inspired by the Phil Hellenes video “Dust That Sings”, Joest’s work is characterized by rich, polyphonic writing and downward-sliding harmonies, ending with a quiet, chordally set “somnia” (meaning “dreams”). It was beautifully performed...
The performance was Friday, Jan 15, 2016, in New Bedford, MA.
That referenced video is one of my all time favorites. Check it out!
