My recent Maine coast tour joining the DaPonte String Quartet and violist Marcus Thompson in five performances of Erich Wolfgang Korngold's dazzling String Sextet along with Brahms' ever rewarding Sextet in B flat major was a wonderful highlight of the year for me. At the end of July I rejoined my longtime colleagues at the Wellesley Composers Conference for a tremendous variety of old and new repertory happening at Houghton Chapel on the lush campus of Wellesley College culminating with Dvorak's soulful and rich String Sextet on August 1. So a bit of breathing room now for family time, practicing, and weeding (oy, is there a lot of weeding to do, the price of a busy summer!), then in late August the Lydian Quartet will be appearing at the Token Creek Festival in Wisconsin, playing Hyla, Harrison, Mendelssohn, Handel, Corelli, and Bach.
