French Embassy Thrilled That Roger Reynolds Will Join Diotima SQ In Contemporary Music Series -- Next Up, Phillips Collection Music Series

"We are thrilled that famous composer Roger Reynolds has agreed to a pre-concert lecture before Diotima String Quartet's performance on Wednesday, January 19!

Reynolds, who is one of the most famous American composers today, is a tenured professor at the University of California, San Diego. His music is published by C.F. Peters, New York and is widely represented on foreign and domestic recordings around the world. The Library of Congress has a special collection dedicated to his works and The Los Angeles Times describes him as “an all-around sonic visionary.”

Roger Reynolds will talk about the process of composition - how ideas come and how they take shape. With the cooperation of the Diotima String Quartet, we will hear live examples!

This contemporary music series gives our audience a unique chance to enjoy the masterpieces of today."
