This year’s Klein Competition is now over. It was a fabulous weekend with eight terrific semi-finalists playing Bach, Tchaikovsky, Berg, Bartok, Sibelius, Poulenc, and Friedman (among others). Three finalists were chosen. I had the pleasure of hearing multiple interpretations of my new pieces Uncle Hokum’s Fiddle (violin), When The World Disintegrates Before Your Eyes (viola), Two Movements from Triptych (Parting, Approaching Home) and being on the very experienced and wonderful panel selecting the winners. Some really amazing talent. I will post audio from my pieces in the coming weeks. More info
Dana Kelley, viola, 3rd Prize; Wyatt Underhill, violin, 2nd Prize; Youjin Lee, violin, 1st Prize.
