Last year, for our Freedom Rising presentation, the amazing Shaw Pong Liu played For Violin by Ed Bland. This work, like many of Bland's pieces, has bold amounts of sophistication and aggression. In June, I will have the honor of performing Sketches Set #7 for piano, and I have started to work on it already during a recent residency at the Visby International Centre for Composers in Sweden! Please enjoy a short video clip from a practice session, and I hope this inspires you to learn more about Ed Bland and his life and music!
Next post: Sunday, February 26th! And, as always, We'd Like To Hear From YOU!
