The shortest post ever?



A while ago, in the middle of the night, I woke in a cold sweat to the realization that in more than twenty years as a professional musician I have yet to play a single work by my favorite composer, Iannis Xenakis. What the heck is up with that?

well, why don't you do something about it?

I invite you to perform Theraps on a Chicago Bass Ensemble concert.

barbthedarb-

I'll start by asking Music of the Baroque. The other orchestra I work for isn't open to suggestions.

Jacque-

Do you have the rest of that? I thought it was out of print...

We just heard a Xenakis piece at SF Symphony. I think everyone found it very convincing.

Sheet Music Plus has it readily available...So they say.

Mr. Hovhanian, do you ever play with the Grand Rapids Symphony? I was at one of their concerts recently, and saw your name listed in the bass section.

I guess look for Theraps on my next recital.

Hovnanian is a very common name. Believe it or not, there are two of us - no relation.
