Glass Notes wishes best wishes and much happiness to Trevor Gureckis and Sugar Vendil who will tie the proverbial knot this weekend. Trevor and I worked together for many years when he was Philip Glass' musical assistant. A composer in his own right, Trevor went on to bigger and better things. Sugar Vendil is a 21st Century Classical Music Visionary. The two most recently collaborated on a ballet Potential Energies which premiered at the Brooklyn Academy of Music.
Why the scene from the film Stoker above? The piano performance that you hear is actually Sugar and Trevor – and yes Glass intentionally wrote this so the one player has to put his arm around the other player. It's a different take on Romanticism in music.
We wish them the best.
