Gaude Mater, Max Richter, and a bit of Mozart

It’s been a crazy few weeks, with the conclusion of the Gaude Mater festival, as well as my mom’s (fantastic!) visit. A hearty congratulations to the other composers who premiered their Pie Jesu pieces along with mine – Michał Malec, Marcin Łukaszewski, Sebastian Szymański, and Marek Raczyński. Truly a diverse and beautiful collection of new pieces – I will post recordings soon! Information about the composers and the Pie Jesu project can be found here: Pie Jesu Project

At the beginning of the month, I took a trip down to Kraków to see Max Richter perform The Blue Notebooks and Recomposed: Vivaldi’s Four Seasons in their entirety. What an incredible concert! Check out a little summary video here:

P.S. My mom and I hopped over to Vienna for a few days, during which my only desire was to hang out near Mozart’s statue like a true stalker admirer (as you can see from the photo).
