    Woohoo... my first (kind of) newspaper review!

    The new Contemporary Music Ensemble here at the Univ of TN performed my piece "Sat Gamaya" for 16 pieces last night and the local Knoxville paper actually gave it a nice review. I will post mp3s of the GPO rendering soon as I am home from class.

    Four performances of my works in 2006 already, I am starting to feel like a composer again. :lol: This semester is almost over and the quest to get applications into doctoral schools begins. Just one more year til I am taking orals and doing finishing touches on my Thesis composition.

    Bravo Jesse!

    Describing the performance as "exciting, exceptional" and the composition of your work in particular as "exhilarating" is quite a compliment!

    Looking forward to hearing the mp3s.

    Congratulations and thanks for spreading the good news about the performance!

    Congratulations (and of course, we'd love to hear the GPO version, but not at the expense of your thesis work ...)

    Jess,

    A very nice, very informed review. Congratulations!
    Lindberg and Schwantner are among my preferred composers. I'm happy your piece was performed together with two of their owns.

    Well, congratulations, Jess! I can imagine your exhilaration on your first review, and a good review to boot! It happened to me years ago, and I will always remember the feeling, as I am sure you will! I hope you preserve it in a scrapbook or file of some sort!!! Or frame it, as I did.

    Congratulations! It's a great feeling to get that first review - surely there will be more to come. Another thing to cheer about - being on the same program as J. Schwanter. That your music is considered good enough to take a seat along side his is a very fine compliment - well deserved, I'm sure.

    Looking forward to hearing the mp3 of your piece.
