A Concerto for the Coolest Cats in Classical Music

There are some days that i come home and think that i have the best job in the world. Yesterday was definitely one of those days, after spending time rehearsing a brand new concerto written by Jennifer Higdon for that uber-hip ensemble "Time for Three" and the Philadelphia Orchestra under Maestro Christoph Eschenbach!

Group picture for everyone putting together "Concerto 4-3" by Jennifer Higdon

Bluegrass, rock, classical Americana, combined with special effects from the T43 band galore (bow scrubbing, bass thumping, string slapping, wacky-wild slides...) - Jennifer has really put together a knockout piece that grooves so perfectly with T43's unique sound and musical approach!

These guys really take their rehearsal seriously...

What it looks like to lose yourself in a great piece

Gentle guidance from the composer herself

This was a rarity for me: playing a conductor rehearsal in Verizon Hall itself, rather than in the Maestro's studio. What fun to rip into the piano reduction at full volume!

Nick, Zach, and Ranaan embody an exciting new vision for classically-trained musicians - bold initiative, fearless creativity, rip-roaring fun, mutual respect for each other, an infectious connection with fans and colleagues, all that topped together with artistry of the highest caliber. The future of art music is in awesome hands with these three superstars!

Ranaan deserves to look heroic; Jennifer's piece pulls out all the stops with regard to everything you can do with a double bass!

I don't know about you, but i guess being a former archer made me fall in love with Ranaan's bow quiver/holster thingy:

Go guys, go! This is sure to bring the house down, again and again!
