This weekend, that pianistic force of nature, Margaret Leng Tan, will
perform my toy piano piece “You Broke It” at the NY premiere of a new
film about her, SORCERESS OF THE NEW PIANO. Margaret added a
theatrical flourish which calls for a 2nd performer–me–talking.
I don’t write much for acoustic instruments so this is a real honor.
Margaret Leng Tan is a singular figure in new music, fiendishly good,
fiercely meticulous AND a musical intimate of Cage–therefore rather
towering in my book.
