The Dreams and Prayers of Kosman the Blind

Sebastian Currier's career boost from winning the Grawemeyer Award takes us one step closer to the hope I've sustained ever since Anne-Sophie Mutter started bringing his music around all those years ago: to see it on a concert program alongside that of Charles Ives. Mutter played the duo Aftersong — why not one of Charlie's violin sonatas to go with? Or Microsymph (which I've never heard) and the Fourth Symphony? Call me shallow, I don't care.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a program featuring Mossolov's Iron Foundry and anything by Walter Piston.

Okay, I have to admit, if I were in charge of programming....
