Notes

Daniel Lentz’s “River of 1,000 Streams,” a dense, slowly evolving textural piece for piano augmented by numerous layers of “cascading echoes.” It’s a virtuosic piece in which a live/solo part is expanded by the addition of hundreds of “cascading echoes” (reappearing fragments of music) that appear kaleidoscopically in up to 11 simultaneous layers, creating a thick texture of primarily tremolos that gradually gains in density and volume as rich harmonies climb, in a great arc, from the very bottom to the top of the keyboard. The composer notes that the music, written in 2016, was “conceived one early morning on the banks of the Yellowstone River.” The work is performed by the Grammy-nominated pianist Vicki Ray, one of LA’s most prominent pianists and new-music champions.
