Unfathomable Presence

Jeff Reilly’s new harp concerto "Unfathomable Presence" had its first performance last week with Symphony Nova Scotia as part of Open Waters Festival. Many thanks to Jeff for writing such a beautiful piece and trusting me with so much freedom, conductor Karl Hirzer for his excellent leadership and instincts, and to Symphony Nova Scotia for the support and consummate musicianship.

Thanks also to the Open Waters Festival and Artistic Director Lukas Pearse for programming this work and facilitating new and improvised music!
