Tonight I made it to my second concert in the Just Intonation Networks series of concerts, this one at Noe Valley Ministry featuring John Schneider on a variety of ‘justly-fretted’ guitars. He played pieces by Lou Harrison, Harry Partch, Terry Riley and one of his own. Nice! Many of the pieces he played on a newly created (2003) steel guitar with just fretting, he said there are now about 10 pieces composed for it.
Last week I saw Terry Riley at the beautiful St Gregory of Nyssa church over on Protrero Hill. There are concerts most weekends for the next month, so check it out if you’re in SF. (There’s also a 70th birthday celebration concert for Terry Riley in Berkeley on June 3).
