Midsummer’s Music Presents Four World Premieres

Virtuoso guitarist Eric Lewis is teaming up with Midsummer’s Music’s composer-in-residence, Will Healy, to present two concerts with four world premieres. They’re working with musicians from Midsummer’s Music’s ensemble and New York City–based composer George Meyer.

The two Eric Lewis Meets Will Healy concerts begin with Healy and Meyer performing movements from Bach’s Sonata No. 6 in G Major. Lewis follows up on guitar with Bourée from Bach’s Suite in E Minor. He continues his set with at least three additional pieces, one of which – For Rose Mary – is the first of the program’s world premieres. Healy and Meyer return with three more original works, including Let the Record Show, the second world premiere.

Following intermission, Healy unveils the world premiere of his Root Position for piano, violin, viola and cello – commissioned by Midsummer’s Music – and Meyer presents his Trio for two violins and cello. The program concludes with a selection of pieces, including the unnamed fourth world premiere performed by Lewis, Healy and Meyer.
