Performances and discussion in Japan

Some of my music will be presented on Sunday, May 20 at Kanack Hall in Yokohama, Japan. This Zen in Music concert is presented as part of a meeting of the Japan Institute of Rhythm.

The event will feature violinist Junko Ando and pianist Daidouji Rentarou performing Gently Flowing, Sonata for Violin and Piano (2010). I will perform the first and third of my Four Meditations from Dogen (1994). Music by composer Kouichi Kiriyama will also be presented.

On May 19, I’ll take part in a panel discussion on “Schoenberg in America” presented by the Musicological Society of Japan. It will begin at 2:00 p.m. in the Art Hall of Meiji-Gakuin University of Tokyo.
