From Great Romantics on May 16, LACO composer-in-residence Derek Bermel talks shop with Sound Investment composer George Tsontakis, whose new piece Laconika was premiered to critical acclaim at the concert.

Each year our Sound Investment program allows a group of music lovers to commission a new piece of music and gain insights into the composition process by attending salons with the composer throughout the year, hearing early readings of the piece, seeing sketches and even attending a full rehearsal.
