A video recording of the pre-concert conversation with Ned Rorem and Charles Amirkhanian. The first concert of the 9th Other Minds Festival was dedicated to “An Evening with Ned Rorem”, on March 5, 2003 at 7:00pm. Palace of Fine Arts Theatre, San Francisco, CA.

Ned Rorem discusses the development of his piece “Evidence of Things Not Seen” which had its West Coast premiere that evening. Rorem also talks about French composer and friend Francis Poulenc, as well as what it was like working as a copyist for Virgil Thomson. Charles Amirkhanian asks for his impressions of the Djerassi Residents Artists program, where the composers get to convene and share their work and ideas for several days before the festival performances.
