Rands at 90

Renowned composer Bernard Rands (b. 1934) will celebrate his 90th birthday with a two-day residency at Guarneri Hall. The event will feature works that deeply influenced Rands, compositions from his own seven-decade career, and pieces written by composers on whom Rands has had a profound influence.

In addition to the music, Rands will talk about his life and his earliest influences, illuminate elements in his work, and talk about the music of the composers that have followed him. The two-day event will conclude with a party in honor of Mr. Rands.

Musical performances will include a world premiere of a new work for solo cello by Bernard Rands, as well as music of Claude Debussy, Augusta Read Thomas, and Kathleen Ginther.
