What an energized time here in the NEXUS studio! Not only have we received word from Gordon Stout that he has completed a new work for NEXUS but we have just received wonderful news from Eric Ewazen. He has taken two movements of his new commissioned work The Eternal Dance of Life (written for NEXUS and wind ensemble) and rewritten them as solo pieces for NEXUS alone. This allows us to include this Inuit-inspired piece in the NEXUS touring repertoire, giving us more opportunities to bring it to a much wider audience. We can’t wait to see the rewrite – the ink is not quite dry yet!
