Clarinetist Emily Mehigh selected my 30 Firsts as part of her “Miniature Month of May” series. (Emily did a piece each day for the whole month) Check out the whole series here!
With the notions of time and timeliness in mind, I wrote 30 Firsts with a sense of quickly learning something new then moving on in mind. (Some of the impulses based on what day it is performed too). I really appreciate how even on May 24th (now 24 pieces into the process) Emily gave this strong, springing performance.
