Abstract

Catherine Likhuta’s music is emotionally charged, programmatic in nature, rhythmically complex, and demands the full control of the entire range of each instrument employed. While this is not a premiere, it is my belief that Let the Darkness Out (2011) is an important new work that has been added to the continually evolving repertoire of the 21st century and serves to strengthen the overall body of music heard at the conference. My performance/presentation will briefly discuss the jazz-influenced elements as well as the rhythmically complex and demanding aspects of this work and serve to introduce the audience to a general set of composer traits followed by a complete performance of the work.
