So much true greatness among the students, faculty, and staff at the @banffcentre the last 3 weeks. Not only an honor to step in with the incredible @parker_quartet, but forever changed after working intensely with 10 of the most talented, hard-working young string quartets I've ever met. #HighlandStreet #Partridge #Iceberg #Bergamot #Butter #Elixir #Gaya #Elara #Alauda #FreeRadicals. Huge shoutout to our 8 insanely inspired and brave composers and also to @clairechaseflute, Steve Schick, @jackquartet, @eyblerquartet, @bodiebones, @jesselysebobo, @theken1313, @autocellic, @dr_szechuan_soiree and @fidigney for laying down a foundation of such pure integrity and support that the resulting explosive growth and joyous connections were inevitable. I'm still taking it all in. Thank you.
Week 3 begins
Just enough left after Janacek and Di Castri for 59/2 with @parker_quartet tonight at @banffcentre. So honored to be filling in for the great @keekim382 this month but also super jealous that he gets to do this all the time
Gonna be so fun (and come hear our new chamber ensemble, chamber ensemble, with @benrussell_music and @calebburhans) Tickets at bicyclefilmfestival.com
So grateful for an entire week with my amazing family 💙
4:16am pure gratitude
This is going to be a powerful thing. Join us!
Working on a new piece for @raleighcivicorchestras and was thinking it would be like Buster Keaton attacking the Death Star and doing the Macarena with narration by the SNL announcer but I guess I'll just start over

Through the night, for 8 hours, we hammered out thousands of the most transcendent quarter notes ever written with Max Richter. In the afternoon I watched the Aizuri Quartet perform my piece LIFT for the finals of M-Prize and my heart almost burst. That was right before they won $100,000. Now on a plane to Singapore where I'm going to play some beautiful chamber music with Nico Muhly and start working on my first symphonic work. #goodday
Bawling!!! The 4 incredible women of the @aizuriquartet just made history!!! The creativity, integrity, beauty and the power that they generate on stage moves me to my core and leaves absolutely no room for any bullshit. Ayane, Miho, Ariana, and Karen, you are my heroes!!!!
