    happy me

    I'm very happy.
    An absolutely wonderful young clarinetist in Montreal wants to perform my Clarinet Sonata this spring.

    It's a tremendous honour. This young man is an absolute virtuoso, and an incredibly expressive performer. I KNOW he will do more than justice to my piece.

    Happily, I've fiddled around with the sonata a bit over the last year, and tightened the structure a bit. I've been having fun listening to it played using the GPO solo clarinet and the GAS (basic). So hopefully, before summer rolls around, I'll have a real live recording of the sonata that I can be proud of.

    This means that within a month or so of each other, I will be getting two performances of works of mine: the Clarinet Sonata, and the Divertimento for 3 Trombones and Orchestra (getting its premiere on the west coast om June).

    Well, it sounds like a very good reason to be happy. If it were me, I would be ecstatic!

    Congratulations, Michel!
    In theory there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice there is.

    Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you!

    To be perfectly frank, I was starting to get a bit discouraged.
    I've been finding it difficult to get my music out there.
    The "establishment" prefers music that is more "modern" than what I write, and at the same time, I've have the misfortune (in a sense) of personally only meeting musicians who find my music too modern!

    Ah! the contradiction!

    The west coast is a pretty big place. Where is the Divertimento performance going to be? If it's in or near Seattle I might be able to get to it.
