Day six

Presentations of work by composer / participants continued… one stand-out of the group is Lembit Beecher. I realize that fame and fortune are not awarded on a merit-based system, but if they were we'd be hearing a lot about Lembit Beecher. If you ever have a chance to hear his music, don't miss it. Another participant who blew me away is Tony Lanman.

We had an afternoon session with Robert Levin. He's quite a talker, and a genius musician. Strangely, what I got out of the conversation (well, lecture would be more accurate) was a real sense of how my work totally doesn't fit in the classical music universe.

We've been enjoying several straight days of lunch at Café Yumm. Good stuff.
