New Cohan Work

Aug 15, 2015

YDP has been honoured to work with the legendary Robert Cohan these past few years. As many of you know, Bob turned 90 this year and there has been a lot of talk about “What Matters”.

After creating and touring Lingua Franca which he made for the company last year I asked Bob if he felt inspired to make a new work. He said he did have something he was thinking about. He had always wanted to make a work to the Kronos Quartets recording of Lacrymosa and suggested a duet for Jonathan Goddard and Laurel Dalley Smith.

This past week he began work in the studio and by the end of the week Bob had created a stunning duet. Next week he is back in the studio to continue working and developing this wonderful new work. Thank you to Middlesex University for supporting this new work by allowing us to work in their beautiful studio and also to London Studio Centre where we will continue to work this coming week.
