Subj: Xenakis Premiere
Date: Tue, 16 Apr 1996 00:44:21 -0400

This Sunday, April 21st, 2:30pm, at the 92nd Street Y in Manhattan(92nd and
Lexington), the NYC premiere of Echange by Xenakis will be given. Echange is
a concerto for bass clarinet. The soloist will be Michael Lowenstern,
certainly one of the most outstanding bass clarinetists alive. I spoke with a
member of the ensemble today, who told me that the bass clarinet playing was
very impressive in today's rehearsal. Michael sounds his usual, confident
self and says he's almost ready.

The concert will also include three other works by Xenakis, who always has
something interesting to say in his music. The ensemble is the Ensemble
Xenakis USA.

Anyone within a day's travel of NYC who is interested in Xenakis, bass
clarinet or both should do everything possible to be here on Sunday for this
exciting event! I will report on the concert next week.
