Episode No. 10: Alan Terricciano, UCI Composer and Dance Professor (Part 2)   

Inspired by Instagram photos of Christ Cathedral, hauntingly beautiful, emptied because of the pandemic, Alan Terricciano (featured in Episode 9) composed Voices in a Quiet Cathedral for solo organ. With Alan as our guide, words from the

mind of the composer himself accompany our journey through this new work hearing the background story behind each moment of this stunningly serene music performed by our host David Ball on the gorgeous Walker Technical Organ at

EPISODE #9
SOUNDS FROM THE SANCTUARY: GUEST IS ALAN TERRICCIANO, UCI COMPOSER AND DANCE PROFESSOR

Episode No. 9: Alan Terricciano, UCI Composer and Dance Professor      

Every music lover wishes they could go back in time and ask the great composers like Bach, Mozart, or Beethoven what inspired their music and the stories behind every piece. Today, we are lucky enough to ask exactly those questions of a

living composer, Alan Terricciano, Composer and Professor of Dance at University of California – Irvine. Listen to the composer himself not only introduce and describe his own music, but also improvise music off-the-cuff at the piano.

Discover the vast, emotional gamut of local composer Alan Terricciano’s music – from the playfulness of a hoedown for solo violin, to the spontaneous music improvised at a piano, and finally to the passionate work Ash in remembrance of

the events of 9/11 that brought the world together.
