Carey to debut "Innesscapes"

New Jersey composer (and Signal to Noise contributor) Christian Carey will premiere his new work “Innesscapes” which will be performed by the Halcyon Trio this Friday, May 9th, at the Montclair Art Museum in Montclair, New Jersey.

From Carey’s program description: “A trio for clarinet, viola, and piano, Innesscapes is based on the life and work of landscape painter George Inness. His late painting, Sunset (1892), served as initial inspiration for a work in which I’ve sought to reflect various facets of Inness’ personality and richly resonant paintings.”

Carey is a composer, performer, music theorist and writer who teaches at the Westminster Choir College of Rider University. He writes regularly for Signal to Noise, including a cover story on Elliott Carter in STN#41. We hope if you’re in the vicinity you’ll come out and investigate Carey’s new work.
