The Montana State Music Teachers Association invites you to attend the premiere of “Roots/Routes”. Commissioned by MSMTA, Philip Aaberg will perform this piece in concert on Friday, October 25 at Petro Theater at MSU Billings. This concert is presented as part of the 2019 MSMTA Annual Conference.

This solo piano event is open to the public, tickets are specially priced at $10 and available on the MSMTA site at: Recital Tickets – Philip Aaberg

Philip will speak from the stage about “Roots/Routes” at the premiere, but here’s a tiny preview:

“My background as a composer is diverse, encompassing high levels of folk, rock, jazz, the classical European and American traditions, contemporary electronic chamber, and world music. I immediately envisioned a piece that would pay tribute to this diversity in themes, compositional devices, and quodlibet, both hiding and in plain sight. This is the ‘roots’ aspect of music, while the ‘routes’ would be the linear structure, whose intersections or junctions would arrive seamlessly through metric and genre modulations” – Philip Aaberg    October 2019, Helena
