Figured I’d start a thread on Elfman’s next classical work, which is due to premiere this fall.
I’ve been listening to Philip Glass’ work with them, and it’s really up my street.July 20, 2019 at 8:04 am #98990

BIG NEWS I just added a page to my website for upcoming new concert commissions. I can’t even describe how much I’m excited about beginning these new challenges. . First off, I just finished a 4-movement, all percussion composition that was commissioned by the Third Coast Percussion Quartet. It premieres on October 10th at a great music festival in Big Sur called the “Days and Nights Festival” that composer Philip Glass hosts each year. My new, yet-to-be-named, composition will play alongside a recent composition called “Perpetulum” that Mr. Glass wrote for Third Coast Percussion as well—his first piece for percussion ensemble. If any of you have heard me talk about my feelings about 20th century composition, you’ll know that Philip Glass had a very big influence on me and is a composer I have incredibly high regard for. I’m absolutely thrilled to be in such great company. For more info go to the website link in my bio > CONCERT WORK > NEW COMMISSIONS . In the next year I begin 3 new commissions that I’ll describe in more detail. I have no doubt these will be amongst, if not THE, greatest challenges of my life. That is, if they don’t kill me first. . #thirdcoastpercussion #philipglass #daysandnightsfeltival #dannyelfmancommissions
