Extractions: CompositonsPiano Music Kimbell, Michael, Fantasy Sonata in four movements: Celestial Encounters Nebulae Energies Dark Forms Duration approx. 32 min. The Fantasy Sonata for solo piano is a musical and philosophical reflection on recent astronomical and cosmological research. In addition to evoking the mysterious beauty of cosmic phenomena and the vastness of space, it delves inward as a spiritual quest prompted by the wonders of space exploration. As the sonata proceeds, the initial narrow perspective of glimpses of space probes, comets and asteroids is progressively widened to encompass galactic dust and gas clouds within which stars are born and die, the primordial atomic forces that initiated the quiet but insistent power of life, and finally black holes and other unknown mysteries. Full use is made of the piano's sonorities and technical possibilities to create sound pictures that range from minute to gigantic. The first movement, Celestial Encounters , was inspired by pictures sent back by the Voyager and Giotto space probes. In the very beginning, staccato notes in irregular rhythms mimic radio signals from spacecraft and answering frequencies from outer space. A plaintive melody takes over and is developed in increasingly complex figurations to depict various types of encounters within the solar system involving objects both natural and man-made; these include inter-crossings of asteroid, comet and planetary orbits, spacecraft fly-bys of the outer planets and Halley's Comet, and culminate in a body smashing into a planet. Here is a dramatic example of art presaging nature, for this movement was written over a decade before the comet plunged into the planet Jupiter! As the shock waves subside, the opening melody is restated, but at half speed and softer, as if to broadcast it into the infinity of space.

Extractions: Advance notice for Tom Jones: the Musical, based on Fielding's novel Musical theatre fans are becoming increasingly aware that NSMT regularly presents shows which rival anything seen on the big stages in downtown Boston. Their next presentation, the American premiere of a revamped version of Paul Leigh and George Stiles "Tom Jones", its American premiere, may just up the ante. There hasn't been a new show with such promise since Flaherty and Ahrens "Seussical" lumbered into town almost four years ago. Stiles' most noted work is "Honk!" with Anthony Drew seen at NSMT in 2000, with whom he also did "Just So" seen there in 2001. With Paul Leigh he's also done the award-winning "Moll Flanders" and "The Three Musketeers" and the composer' s just provided new songs for Cameron McIntosh's "Mary Poppins" opening in London in December. Directing this improved show is Gabriel Barre, who helmed last fall's "Memphis" premiere for NSMT. Barre directed Lippa's "The Wild Party" in New York for MTC, among his notable credits, and currently directing Frank Wildhorn's "Camille Claudel" and Kander and Ebb's musical adaptation of "Skin of Our Teeth". Producer Daniel D. Brambilla, CEO of the Hummingbird Centre for the Performing Arts in Toronto, Canada's largest theatre is being credited as a co-collaborator on this production. He'd been interested in bringing this classic to the stage for several years, and convinced lyricist Leigh to write his own book to replace John Doyle's used for the first production in York, England.
