Juilliard is deep

Started at Juilliard this week. It's a dream come true. Practicing everyday on those gorgeous Steinways.... hearing my music mix with all that Beethoveen and Mozart and Brahms in the air everywhere....

Went to Chamberfest 2006 last night, heard L'Histoire Du Soldat ,and a work by a composer named Jefferson Friedman. New Tonalism gaining energy...

Met John Corigiliano. He said he tries "to express truth and deep things - using very simple structures to make very complex sounds.... how clever ears are..."

Congratulations Phoebe! When will we hear you playing with the Philharmonic? Or singing at the Met? It's about time!

Corigiliano,like all
truly daring
artists,
has faith
in the "clever
ears" of the audience.
Cheap cynicism
is never
an option!

Corigliano's advice
to Friedman-
have a
fully formed idea
of what you
want to do
before you
write-may
seem to crush
spontaneity
but in fact
encourages
it.
