I'm going to new York! / (what a lark! what a song!) / where the tough Rocky's eaves / hit the sea. Where th'Acro- / polis is functional, the trains / that run and shout! the books / that have trousers and sleeves! (from Song by Frank O'Hara, 1951)

Ergodos presents a bold new interpretation of Steve Reich's iconic New York Counterpoint by young English clarinettist Jonathan Sage. Sage's incisive playing lends Reich's multi-layered lattice-work score a new freshness.

Song by Frank O'Hara is copyright © 1996 by Maureen O'Hara Granville Smith, administratrix of the Estate of Frank O'Hara. Used by permission.
