In addition to the new A Midsummer Night's Dream Goldenthal composed for the new theater opening in Brooklyn in November that'll be released on Zarathustra later this year,

-he released a chamber music record (released today, April 1st) which is scrolling on the banner at iTunes Classical which features the world premiere of his String Quartet No.1 "The Stone Cutters"

-on May 2 he celebrates his 60th birthday

-on May 6 his Othello Symphony is being released:
Amazon link: http://www.amazon.com/Elliot-Goldenthal-Othello-Symphony/dp/B00JEJMAJW/

-May 8 his new Symphony in G# Minor is premiering at the Pacific Symphony Orchestra in Orange County on a program of works by Williams, Shore, and Horner. The program will be broadcast on KUSC.

I posted the other day for those near NYC, he's appearing for a Q & A with Julie Taymor on April 4.

Othello Symphony:

Othello preordered!

Also, I'm enjoying the Stone Cutters release. That brass quintet is quite the revelation, too.

Was afraid this was going to be an April Fools post!

Preordered the Othello Symphony -- if I remember correctly, it was only 30 minutes long so here's hoping there's something else on the disc, $20 with shipping from Amazon is a bit steep for that, especially when I have the ballet CD.

Naturally Amazon didn't ship the Chamber Works disc til today, ugh, but can't wait to hear it whenever it does get here.

I've never seen the ballet, but as a fan of both Goldenthal and Othello, I will definitely be picking this up.

I think Othello Symphony is 35 minutes long. I welcome a new version - if there's 100 Mahler Fifth Symphony's I'll take 2 Othello's!

I think Othello Symphony is 35 minutes long.
Still a bit short for this high a price point without any other filler on the disc. But's Goldenthal, I'm just happy to have him back wink

The Stone Cutters disc is only about 38 minutes, too. He wrote most of these pieces, save for the String Quartet, when he was 20-24 years old. Crazy.

The man has some skills.

Great set of releases for Goldenthal fans, very glad to see these since his absence from films has been notable.

It's great that stuff is happening. As usual, some minor quibbles -- like desiring one of his many unreleased concert works over another version of OTHELLO and the inclusion of the previously available brass quintet on the STONE CUTTERS disc -- but as I said, just minor quibbles.

Wish I'd been able to attend any of these functions -- or that they had been timed with my NY visit in June -- but there you go.

I'll probably buy all of this; and hope I'll be able to catch the KUSC broadcast of the concert.

I received my copy of OTHELLO a day early (thanks Amazon), but have just now got around to listening to it. While I'm not done, I will say that the arrangements and trimming Goldenthal did to get this to symphony length are great. I don't feel it's a replacement for the Varese CD; rather, it can stand side by side it as an imagination. The redone Tarantella movement is incredible - the new combination of the pitch bending horns with the sultry sax utterly works.
