Bolcom’s New “Sextet” at Chamber Music Northwest
William Bolcom’s newest premiere will be a work for sextet, entitled Sextet, drawing upon the instrumentation of Bohuslav Martinů’s La revue de cuisin, or clarinet, bassoon, trumpet, violin, cello, and piano. The work was co-commissioned by Chamber Music Northwest, the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival, and the PyeongChang (Great Mountain) Music Festival in Gangwon, South Korea. Their respective premieres will take place on July 3 (& 4), August 16, and August 6. Mr. Bolcom will be residence at the two U.S. Premieres, and at Chamber Music Northwest he will also perform, with his wife Joan Morris, the narrator part to William Walton’s Façade.
