Devotion by Lawrence Dillon to Be Performed May 13 and 14 by Taos Chamber
Music Group

Lawrence Dillon's Devotion will be performed by the Taos Chamber Music
Group as part of their 'Music of the Spirit' concert on Saturday, May
13 - 8:00 PM and Sunday, May 14 - 5:30 PM at the Harwood Museum of Art,
238 Ledoux Street in Taos, New Mexico.

Devotion, a 6-minute 30-second, single-movement work for flute, violin,
viola and piano was completed in 1996.  It hews closely to a very simple
theme in an unassuming manner.  Composed in Medieval clausula form (a
type of variation in which the melody is intertwined with fragments of
itself), the piece uses the flute to state its theme with three increasingly
fervent variations.  The blend of compositional techniques in this piece
draws from six centuries of musical evolution.

It will be performed along with other music inspired by spirit, including
Gustav Holst's Hymns from the Rig Veda, Leo Brouwer's Where the Air is
Clear, Arnold Bax's Elegiac Trio and Beethoven's Ghost Piano Trio.

Tickets for the May 13 and 14 concerts are $15 in advance and $17
at the door.  They can be obtained at the Harwood Museum Gift Shop
at 505-758-9826, or can be charged by phone through the Taos Center
for the Arts, 133 Paseo del Pueblo Norte, 505-758-2052.

The Taos Chamber Music Group has gained a reputation for presenting one
of Northern New Mexico's most innovative and successful music series,
with programs that celebrate the universal language of music and the
unique cultural diversity of the Taos area.  Its varied repertoire spans
the Baroque to the Contemporary and has combined classical masterpieces
with lesser-known chamber music works, including compositions by Latin
American, Spanish, Native American, women and jazz composers.  The group
has commissioned new works, been joined by composers-in-residence, and
collaborated with writers, poets, dancers, artists and historians.  Visit
them online at http://taoswebb.com/tcmg.

Hailed by the Louisville Courier-Journal for his 'compelling, innate
soulfulness,' Lawrence Dillon has produced an extensive body of work
characterized by a keen sensitivity to color and a mastery of traditional
forms.  A student of Vincent Persichetti, Milton Babbitt, Elliott Carter,
David Diamond, and Roger Sessions, Dillon became at the age of 26 the
youngest composer to earn a doctorate at the Juilliard School (1985),
also winning the Gretchaninoff Prize and an ASCAP Young Composers Award.
Currently Composer-in-Residence at the North Carolina School for the
Arts, Dillon holds residencies at numerous summer festivals, and has
been awarded grants from the American Music Center and National Endowment
for the Arts, among others.  His works have received special commendation
from the 2003 Masterprize of London, been chosen for the 2002 Jordania
International Conducting Competition in Kharkov, Ukraine and been performed
and broadcast throughout the Americas and Europe.  His lively Sequenza
21 blog 'An Infinite Number of Curves' can be read at
http://www.sequenza21.com/dillon.html.

He is the subject of the January 2006 American Composer feature by Kyle
Gann in Chamber Music Magazine.  Visit his website at
