I apologize for the short hiatus from New Music Monday! Throwing together an orchestra, being a grad student, and teaching were all vying for my time this month, and something had to give. But enough excuses! Let’s hear some music!
Today’s piece is “Concertante” by D.C.-area-based composer Quinn Dizon. In addition to being a composer, Quinn is also a conductor, having earned masters degrees in Composition and Orchestral Conducting from the University of Louisville before continuing onto the University of Maryland for his doctorate. This piece was composed for the UMD University Orchestra to be performed on a concert featuring Elgar’s Enigma Variations. Enjoy!
