Bandung Phil Composer Clinic

Many thanks to Marisa Sharon Hartanto and Airin Efferin for the opportunity to work with Indonesian composers during this year’s Composer Clinic. A year has past, and I want to briefly reflect on this opportunity. I had a blast presenting a project on Brazilian composers along with a few works of my own. But the most fun was during the masterclass and many of the participating composers were able to present a work and receive commentary from Sharon, Michael Hall, and myself. There is great and innovative music being written in Indonesia and it needs to be heard. I highly recommend you to look up this orchestra and take a listen to several of their new works. They commission a new work by an Indonesian composer for every concert! (American orchestras take note 😉 ) The community loves it! Looking forward to seeing more of the works of these composers in the future!
