New Recording – New York Counterpoint

Over the past few weeks, hunkered in my home studio in lockdown, I’ve very much enjoyed putting together this recording of Steve Reich’s New York Counterpoint. Originally written for multi-tracked clarinets and soloist, Susan Fancher’s arrangement for multi-tracked saxophones works wonderfully, and I feel imbues the work with a completely different character.

I first encountered the work as a first-year undergraduate at the University of Toronto, and was a real “gateway drug” into contemporary music for me. I’ve wanted to record and perform the work as a soloist for some time, but the lockdown period is the first real opportunity I’ve had to hone my chops on recording software.

I hope you enjoy!
