The premiere of Daniel Goode's Clarinet Quintet is by the distinguished Momenta Quartet, founded by violist Stephanie Griffin, with virtuoso clarinetist Moran Katz as soloist. They've just issued their first CD. The quartet will also be part of the fifteen-instrument Flexible Orchestra, a large ensemble founded by Mr. Goode in 2004, here conducted by David Gilbert, formerly the Manhattan Opera Orchestra conductor, and professor at that conservatory. Mr. Gilbert conducted the premiere of the revival of Mr. Goode's groundbreaking, "minimalist symphony" Tunnel Funnel in 1988. That work is recorded on Tzadik Records, a company started by composer-performer, John Zorn. Then music critic of the Village Voice, Kyle Gann, called Tunnel Funnel 'tune of the decade.' "
