    Recent discoveries

    Today I've got in touch with the work of American composers James Primosch and John Harbison.
    The latter's "Wind Quintet" and "Ulysses' Bow" sound a lot like the music I wish to write myself.
    What a profitable morning I had.

    Just curious: how did you stumble onto James Primosch's music? Jim and I studied music at Cleveland State University back in the early '70's. From his web site (jamesprimosch.com), I'd say he's kept himself pretty busy in the ensuing years.

    Hi Steve.

    My introduction to him was through the works of American poetess Susan Stewart.
    He was commissioned by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra to set music to Stewart's Songs of Adam.
    He hes very good at handling instrumental resources (human voice included).
