A concert of Music on Music! The best way a composer can pay tribute, comment or criticize a piece is to write another piece of music in response. SMO will present three composers that have entered in dialogue with another composer's work: Earle Brown's Tracking Pierrot a tribute to Arnold Schoenberg's Pierrot Lunaire, op. 21, UW Faculty member Joël-François Durand's Tombeau de Rameau II a deformation/expansion of Rameau's Pièces de Clavecin en Concerts, and Franco Donatoni's Tema, in which he pushes further a work of his own, Ruisseau dans l'escalier.
