Thomas Hampson, by Dario Acosta.

…is the name of the extraordinary Billy Collins poem on which I based my new piece for baritone and string quartet: Music Accord commissioned it for the matchless Thomas Hampson and the Jupiter String Quartet, and now that it’s complete and off to the artists (it was touch and go there for a while) I’m happy to announce the performances.  The première will be in Davis, California, at the Mondavi Center on April 24th: then we all travel to Boston, for its début on the Celebrity Series before concluding the initial tour at Tully Hall, under the auspices of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center.
