About composer and pianist Wayne Horvitz
Composer and pianist Wayne Horvitz, a repeat resident and father of former BMC staffer Nica Horvitz, has just released Some Places Are Forever Afternoon (11 Places for Richard Hugo), a suite of instrumental interpretations of poems by poet Richard Hugo. Wayne and Nica researched the project on a two-week trip through Montana to visit places mentioned in Hugo’s work. Nica chronicled the journey in a photo blog. Wayne gathered musician colleagues from the groups Sweeter Than the Day and The Gravitas Quartet to record the work.
