Joel Phillip Friedman is pleased to announce TWO World Premieres with the National Chamber Ensemble! First, his “fierce little viola piece” When The World Disintegrates Before Your Eyes debuts… as a violin piece thanks to virtuoso and NCE Artistic Director Leo Sushansky. Next will be the premiere of a new trio arrangement (clarinet, piano, and percussion) of the popular 2nd movement from his piece Elastic Band “Pure Happenchance,” created specially for Leo’s ensemble. “Pure Happenchance” will feature clarinet star Julian Milkis, the only student and protege of jazz great Benny Goodman, stellar local pianist Carlos Cesar Rodriguez, and Leland Nakamura, drums. The program also includes works by Claude Bolling and Sam Post.
