Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's Anders Jallén
The first few bars, shown here, of a piece written for a conductor performing solo. The original idea is from many years ago and I revisited and completed the piece in one of the solitary periods of the pandemic. Inspirational, and fun, piece to study and perform in such an environment. Contact me if you want a copy.
This photo reveals some of the intensity it takes to conduct the piece. A good performance of fluxus requires enormous concentration.
Video will be presented here in the autumn, perhaps as early as September
Importantly the Grand Piano is there at the disposal of the conductor.
... which he undertakes at the Academy for Creative and Performing Arts, University of Leiden. As serious as this is - which it is indeed - the piece is of course also intended to be performed and experienced joyfully.
