N Lincoln Hanks - N. Lincoln Hanks
Publisher Desc. From the New York Times'review of the premiere given in New York City - Cutting Edge Concerts New Music Festival at Symphony Space (New York Times April 3 2012): N. Lincoln Hanks' energetic four-movement Monstre Sacre closed the program. The sacred monster of the title Mr. Hanks explained describes musicians whose peculiarities and social lapses we tolerate for the sake of their artistry. The only one he identified in his comments was the pianist Glenn Gould which explains the passing references to Bach's English and French suites but not those to Gershwin Prokofiev and other composers who flit through the piece). The success of Mr. Hanks' work was that it offered you enough purely musical twists that you stopped wondering which monsters he had in mind.
