A Terrific Review

A terrific review of the February 10 performance at the Gershwin Hotel is up at the blog Lucid Culture.

It's true there were a lot of spiders in my poems—including the French, mid-western and the Central Park varieties. All the poems except the first three are new and unpublished.

Here's the set list:

Haydn: Sonata in C minor, Hob XVI:20, performed by Dmitri Dover

Poems (all these are in slightly revised forms from The Pitch): "All Scents Rise," "The Lake," "The Water Towers of New York" (revised version of "Gloss Upwards" from The Pitch)

Prokofiev: Selections from Romeo and Juliet, Op. 75, performed by Dmitri Dover

Rodion Shchedrin: Basso Ostinato, peformed by Inna Faliks

Poems: "Unnamed," "Between Seizures," "Weekender"

Liszt: Symphonic Poem #4, Orpheus, transcribe for piano for four hands by Liszt, performed by Dmitri Dover and Inna Faliks

Liszt: Transcendental Etude #11, Harmonies du Soir; and Paganini-Liszt: "LaCampanella" performed by Inna Faliks

Poems: "The Very Image of a Child," "The Spider's Line"

Debussy: Selections from Preludes, Book I, performed by Dmitri Dover

Poems: "Specimen," "Progression & Absence"

Chopin: Scherzo No.2, Op. 31, performed by Dmitri Dover
