Viola Concerto premiere (with pictures!)

A bit late to be reporting this, I know, but my Viola Concerto was premiered as scheduled on Nov. 3. It seems to have been very well received; at any rate, I’ve heard nothing but positive comments. Logan played beautifully, and got a well deserved standing ovation at the end.

I’ll have audio to post soon. Meanwhile, here are some pictures that were taken during the performance by a THSO board member, Carl Bender.

Logan Strawn, soloist for the concerto, talks before the concert starts.

I also addressed the audience at a short talk before the concert started.

David Bowden, introduces the concerto from the podium. I’m sitting in the principal viola chair, Logan’s usual place.

Mutual congratulations.

Soloist and composer take their bows.

It’s been a busy few months, and there’s a lot to catch up on, but it will have to wait for another post, which will hopefully come soon.

  1. Terrific piece, Dan! From Andante to Adagio to Allegro – everything beautiful and evocative (and breathtakingly exciting in the last movement)!
