John McMurtery, flute

James Romig (composer) and John McMurtery (flutist) will discuss a specific pair of projects that they have undertaken during their 20 years of musical collaboration. The program will begin with a performance of Sonnet 2 (1999), followed by a discussion some of that work's notable features.

Conversation will then turn to the explication of a brand-new work, Palindragram (2018), followed by its world-premiere performance. Over the course of the evening, McMurtery and Romig will touch on aspects of collaboration, the process of commissioning, and idiomatic (and sometimes not-so-idiomatic) writing for flute. There will also be time devoted to audience questions.
