About

Combining musicians from Wayne Horvitz's two long standing quartets, The Gravitas Quartet and Sweeter Than the Day, Some Places are Forever Afternoon is a suite of instrumental songs based on 11 poems by celebrated Northwest poet Richard Hugo. The performance is part of a new CD that will premiere this fall.

Composer, pianist, and keyboardist Wayne Horvitz is the leader of Sweeter Than the Day, Zony Mash, The 4 Plus 1 Ensemble, the Gravitas Quartet and co-founder of the New York Composer Orchestra. A prolific composer, he has been commissioned by the various institutions ranging from from the Seattle Chamber Players to Brooklyn Academy of Music, and has collaborated with Gus Van Sant and John Zorn, among others.

The work of American regionalist poet and essayist Richard Hugo focused on the people, places, and experiences of his native Pacific Northwest region. As the head of the University of Montana’s Creative Writing Program for many years, Hugo authored five books of poetry, a memoir, and a mystery novel.

The performance will consist of two 45 minute sets with intermission.
