Ok, so I'm certain there's another side to this story.
About Daniel Asia:
"Daniel Asia, b. Seattle, WA 1953, has been an eclectic and unique
composer from the start. He has enjoyed the usual grants from Meet the
Composer, a UK Fulbright award, Guggeneheim Fellowship, MacDowell and
Tanglewood fellowships, ASCAP and BMI prizes, Copland Fund grants, and
numerous others. From 1991-1994 he was Composer- in Residence of the
Asia's five symphonies have received wide acclaim from live
performance and their international recordings. The Fifth Symphony was
recently finished for the Tucson and Jerusalem symphony orchestras in
celebration of Israel's 60th anniversary.
His various orchestral works have been performed by the Cincinnati
Symphony, Seattle Symphony, Milwaukee Symphony, New Jersey Symphony,
Phoenix Symphony, American Composers Orchestra, Columbus Symphony,
Grand Rapids Symphony, Jacksonville Symphony, Chattanooga Symphony,
Memphis Symphony, Tucson Symphony, Knoxville Symphony, Greensboro
Symphony, Seattle Youth Symphony Orchestra, Colorado Philharmonic
Orchestra, and many others.
In the chamber music arena, Mr. Asia has written for, and been
championed by, the Dorian Wind Quintet, American Brass Quintet,
Meadowmount Trio, Cypress Quartet, Andre-Michel Schub (piano), Carter
Brey (cello), Alex Klein (oboe), Benjamin Verdery (guitar), John
Shirley-Quirk and Sara Watkins (baritone and oboe), Jonathan Shames
(piano), violinists Curtis Macomber, Gregory Fulkerson, Mark Rush and
Zina Schiff, and Robert Dick (flute). Under a Barlow Endowment grant,
he is presently writing for The Czech Nonet, the longest continuously
performing chamber ensemble on the planet, founded in 1924.
The recorded works of Daniel Asia may be heard on the labels of
Summit, New World, Attacca, Albany, Babel, and Mushkatweek. For
further information, visit the Daniel Asia website at
Wow - you're right. The guy sounds like a horrible teacher!=A0 It would
defniitely be scandalous if it got out that this guy didn't know what
he was talking about!
Secondly, I'm not entirely clear as to why you believe UofA
"black-listed" you because you tried to invent a new kind of fugue?
Also, I'm not entirely clear on how you invent a new kind of fugue
(isn't a fugue just an idea, after all?) And what of their "legal
excuse" of you never having a disability and having poor attendance?
If you believe the school has treated you unfairly, I would seek legal
counsel with regards to your termination, and leave the fact that you
believe are being blacklisted because of writing concertos and fugues,
which is, of course, a proposterous claim.
