It's a little odd that Kyle Gann, the world's leading authority on the furiously original music of Conlon Nancarrow, had to go to London to participate in a commemoration of the Nancarrow centenary. Where are the American celebrations? Justin Davidson was asking this question a little while back; I haven't come across much, although some events are slated for the fall, in conjunction with an online Nancarrow symposium. Above is an excerpt from James Greeson's new documentary, Conlon Nancarrow: Virtuoso of the Player Piano.
Update: Authoritative sources indicate that Other Minds, in San Francisco, is preparing a multi-day Nancarrow tribute for the fall of 2012.
