In June, I completed my set of new preludes and fugues, The Well-Tempered Quarantine.  The six pairs are an homage of course to Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier.  I even performed them, with introductory commentaries, for my YouTube channel.  Working at small scale in highly contrapuntal music was an exacting regimen, and a thrilling one.  And now, in late summer, I am applying all that refreshed craft to an hour-long work for the stage.  I’m writing for a mixed ensemble of ten players, one voice, and dancers.  It’s all quite exciting in my mind’s ear and eye – but as yet I’m not announcing the title or scenario.  The search for a producing partner is on, and I wouldn’t want to jinx it, especially as companies struggle to get back on their feet.  Wish me luck!
