New Recording of Music by Jay Reise '72 Includes Program Notes by Peter Rabinowitz

"Devil in the Flesh and Other Pieces," the latest recording of music by Jay Reise, has appeared on Albany Records (www.albanyrecords.com). The CD has a number of connections to Hamilton College: Reise graduated from Hamilton in 1972 and later served on the Hamilton faculty; the program notes are by Comparative Literature Professor Peter Rabinowitz; and one of the works, Satori, received its world premiere at Hamilton in 1995, when it was performed by soprano Deborah Massell '80 and Sar-Shalom Strong, currently a lecturer in piano. The recording includes four works, all of which feature Marc-André Hamelin, widely regarded as the outstanding pianist of his generation. Also participating in the performances are bassoonist Charles Ullery (principal bassoonist of the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra) and soprano Jody Karin Applebaum.

Alumnus John Nichols '62 wrote a column for the Los Angeles Times, "An unstable relationship that he can count on" (9/14/04) about the area in which he lives near Taos, N.M. "During the last three years, I have climbed my mountain more than 50 times. It's my escape to a world devoid of human ingenuity. Between me and the pale moon overhead there is only air and the great distances of the universe, a fact that comforts me. I usually hike alone, and once above Gallegos Lake at 11,000 feet I almost never meet another person. This suits me well because in my dotage I have grown tired of the human gabble," Nichols wrote. He is the author of The Milagro Beanfield War.
