Nico Muhly – It’s About Time (2004)

A video about It’s About Time:

It’s About Time was written for Sam Solomon, one of my oldest collaborators. Some of the first music I wrote, I wrote for Sam, so when he asked me to write a solo for him in 2004, I started thinking about the sort of thing you cook for your best friends – food from the pantry, not designed to impress: the company itself is the point of the encounter. It’s About Time is precisely that: staples, things I know that I do well, and things I know Sam (and, by hopeful extension, any percussionist) does well.  It’s About Time lasts 9 minutes and is dedicated, with many thanks, to Sam Solomon.
