Yesterday concluded my mini college tour with a virtual visit to the University of Central Florida, where I presented two of my works to undergraduate composers under the guidance of my friend, composer Alex Burztos. Just like my visits to Eastman and Buffalo, I was impressed with these young musical minds. It’s interesting to observe that when presenting the same compositions to many different people, they often formulate different reactions and questions in response to the work. This suggests that regardless of what a composer intends, there are infinite ways of “hearing” a work. And beautifully so.
