I have posted the complete recording of the May 15, 2012 premiere of Drum Taps: Nine Poems on Themes of War at the website “Soundcloud.” Please share this post with anyone who is interested- conductors, audience members, anyone interested in contemporary classical music, anyone who agrees that classical music can actually make a difference in the world by stirring emotions, thoughts and discussions about serious topics, like our species’ addiction to war…
Here is the link to the audio files (mp3) of the nine movements (in 10 files- one movement has two halves.)
Here are the full texts.
Here is a link to a short video interview with myself and the conductor about the piece.
Here is a press release with some description of the piece and its premiere.
