the love songs of j. alfred prufrock by larkin sanders
Last night, I had the pleasure (and indeed, the honor) to perform a new work by a dear, dear friend. The music itself is quite good--in the Love Songs of J. Alfred Prufrock, Larkin has shown her keen instincts for organicism, appropriation, and tunefulness divorced from the saccharine and the tired. More than the music itself, the experience of premiering a new work is always a thrill, especially when it is the work of a close friend performed in the company of close friends. I look forward to sharing the Love Songs with CMM audiences in June of 2011.
