Very Thoughty of Me

I just realized that, on Postclassic Radio, I’ve been playing my own music theater piece Custer and Sitting Bull with the vocal part missing from the second, Sitting Bull scene. I must have accidentally uploaded that movement from the performance CD, which is a kind of “Music Minus One” version. (Does anyone besides me remember “Music Minus One” records, which would allow you to practice a concerto with a recorded orchestra?) I apologize for the confusion – most of all, to myself.

That piece is now followed by a beautiful 1992 work for multiple electric guitars – Sunrise over Fields of Withered Grain – by the great, undersung Paul Sturm, whose web site you should check out.
