Commissioned by the Community Music Center with Katja Garloff and Asher Klatchko.
Ikarus – Duo for Binya was commissioned by the Community Music Center of Portland, OR to honor the memory of Benjamin Klatchko, a boy of brilliance who died tragically at the age of 17. I got to know him through videos of his classical performances on viola and violin, and the brilliant rap songs that he wrote, sang and recorded. Two of his beats and melodies are woven into this duo.
This piece was the precursor to the orchestral piece, Ikarus Among the Stars, built around Binya’s song Among the Stars.
