Harold Meltzer http://wrti.org en Rumors on Now Is the Time http://wrti.org/post/rumors-now-time <p>There are journeys and rumors of journeys on <strong>Now Is the Time, Sunday, October 13th at 10 pm</strong>. Harold Meltzer&#39;s <em>Rumors</em> is for one flutist and four flutes: piccolo, C flute, alto, and bass. He envisions a drum set, the breathing of conspiracies (<em>con spirare</em>, to breathe together), and an old man on a bench in Italy trying to remember a children&#39;s song.<br /><br />Sergio Cervetti pictures Peru&#39;s desert drawings in <em>Nazca</em> for string orchestra. Seen from the air, they could be monkeys, spiders, hummingbirds, or extraterrestrials, but whatever they are, the music is rich and inviting. As is <em>Elegant Journey with Stopping Points of Interest</em>, using the drawn, or graphic, notation that Robert Moran was employing in the &rsquo;60s. He revised this for solo organ, and we hear the European premiere from 2009.<br /> Sun, 13 Oct 2013 01:51:17 +0000 Kile Smith 6573 at http://wrti.org Rumors on Now Is the Time
