English horn: Jacqueline Leclair; oboe: Vilém Veverka
With these ensembles I played music by Stefan Wolpe, Iannis Xenakis and Earle Brown. I also performed Karheinz Stockhausen's quintet "Zeitmaße" with my colleagues of the Czech orchestra - a tricky piece to play! These works asked me to play clarinets (Bb and A) and bass clarinet.
Rehearsals went very fine and the final concert was attended by a large audience. We had a positive review at the New York Times.
During this time in New York, I had the great opportunity to meet Jerry, the man behind Sequenza21 - we had a nice lunch together talking about a bit of everything. He was very kind to create this entrance in his blog.
A wonderful experience, full of good friends and good music.
