Video Interview on Agnus Dei

Mendelssohn Club of Philadelphia interviews me about Agnus Dei, which they commissioned to complement the Mozart Great Mass in C Minor. The premiere, with Symphony in C, is Sunday, October 18th at 4 pm at the Church of the Holy Trinity on Rittenhouse Square in Philadelphia.

I talk—which I seem only able to do while using my hands a lot—about listening/not listening to Mozart, the challenge of making three lines (two of which are the same, the third of which is mostly the same) last 10–15 minutes, and my helplessness at the piano.

Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccata mundi, miserere nobis.
Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccata mundi, miserere nobis.
Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccata mundi, dona nobis pacem.

Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world, have mercy on us.
Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world, have mercy on us.
Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world, grant us peace.
