“. . . the St. Lawrence String Quartet will give the world premiere of a newly commissioned work by James Matheson, a Brooklyn-based composer born in 1970.”
I attended a LACO concert last fall where they performed one of his works, “True South” (a NY Phil commission) — enjoyed it and would very much like to hear more of his stuff. Have you heard anything by Mr. Matheson before?
I don’t think so, CK. I hope to hear the string quartet, though.
