Here and Now Series — Garlands for Steven Stucky

September 27, 2018 at 7:00 pm

The shock of Steven Stucky’s untimely passing on Valentine’s Day of 2016 resonates still throughout the world of contemporary music. With his music and his writings, his generosity as an educator, colleague, and friend, and his knowledge and depth as the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s Consulting Composer for New Music, Stucky touched many lives.

This concert marks the release of Gloria Cheng’s latest CD, Garlands for Steven Stucky (Bridge Records), featuring 32 miniatures contributed by a distinguished roster of Stucky’s closest friends and students. The collection is a remarkable testament to Stucky’s boundless esteem amongst his colleagues.
