Projects and performances that were held back because of the pandemic are now starting to come to fruition for Graham Lynch. Many of these works are the result of long-term and ongoing collaborations with performers in various countries and are also resulting in CD recordings to be released over the next year.
August will see the world premiere of works written for US pianist Paul Sánchez, White Book 3 (a set of five pieces) and Absolute Inwardness. He will also give the first US performance of The Couperin Sketchbooks. This concert staged in collaboration with the San Francisco International Piano Festival will be performed to both a live and online audience.
The same month will also see the premieres of the Sonata for two guitars given by the Helsinki Guitar Duo and a new piano work written for Constance Chow, Sideshow.
In July, the Cuarteto de Saxofones Orient will give the first performance of Hockney’s Shoes, a piece inspired by an exhibition of portraits by David Hockney.
July will also see the UK premiere of Symphony Cocteau for saxophone quartet and piano at the Royal College of Music. This was originally commissioned by the East End Saxophone Quartet who gave the first performance in the US a couple of years ago.
We at Composers Edition are looking forward to listening to all these concerts and recordings of Graham Lynch’s music and to publishing those new works in due course. Presently, The Couperin Sketchbooks and Symphony Cocteau are available for perusal and purchase through our website alongside other works by Graham Lynch.
