Programme Note
David Lang Grind to a Halt (1996),
Composer Note:

My pieces are not conventionally virtuosic, but they are very hard. One of the things that interests me very much is how certain mechanical musical tasks force players - and listeners - into a kind of concentration that can be spellbinding. The intense concentration necessary to coordinate the ensemble in Grind to a Halt is a kind of virtuosity in itself.

Grind to a Halt is dedicated to the memory of my teacher Jacob Druckman.
