Brian Petuch

Brian Petuch is a young composer in New York (and another friend of Adam Cuthbért’s), for whom that city is not a mere locale but something of a muse: the works in this playlist blend together, to name the most patent inspirations, the impetus of minimal music, the drama and rhythm in the score for West Side Story, and some of the sounds of the streets, fashioning from these divergent sources orchestral processions and energetic odes to the city par excellence.
