28 October - Tanosaki-Richards duo, UMBC, Arbutus, MD -- The T-R duo played contemporary works by Hiroyuki Yamamoto, Drake Mabry, Michael Finnissy, Toru Takemitsu, and Hiroyuki Itoh.
In addition to the detailed program notes, clarinetist Richards made introductory comments about several pieces. Of the Mabry piece, which was written for him, he remarked that it reminded him of a novice learning to play the clarinet. The work had the most astonishing array of multiphonics, and does give the impression of beginner blowing, except no novice could produce the tones and harmonics with Richards' precision. (Moreover, I was enveloped by his sound. It almost felt like 3-D audio. (Was there some kind of miking and amplification?))
Pianist Tanizaki soloed on the Takemitsu piece which ranged up and down the keyboard, at times. What also struck me was the audience restraint in wating for the last chord to compeltely die out before applauding. (I've been to some performances at the Freer gallery in DC, where someone would start applauding too soon.)
