Kevin Puts talks about "The City"
Composer Kevin Puts speaks about this latest piece "The City" and the inspirations behind composing the piece. "The City" received its world premiere performances in April 2016 with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra under Marin Alsop in the DC area, Baltimore, and New York's Carnegie Hall!
"Though inspired by the city of Baltimore, The City was intended to be an exploration of many aspects of American urban centers. My work on the piece intensified after the unrest of April 2015, when protestors took to the streets in reaction to the death of 25-year-old Freddie Gray, an African American resident of Baltimore who suffered fatal injuries while in police custody. After this incident, I aspired to transcend mere illustration and compose a work with the potential to heal, as well." - Kevin Puts
