As a long time member of the PARMA family, Gregory W. Brown has released multiple albums on Navona Records and has participated in collaborations worldwide, with performances from Carnegie Hall to Malta. Brown’s composition Harmonies of Opposites was commissioned by the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra and premiered on February 2, 2019 in the Manoel Theatre. The piece, inspired by Maltese literature and art, was accompanied by a variety of other native works, and Overture to Candide by American composer Leonard Bernstein. In a previous interview in 2019, Brown cited the work of artist Victor Pasmore as an inspiration for the piece.
“When I saw the prints of Victor Pasmore I knew immediately that I had found something special — something that I could relate to and build off of sonically. I look forward to being in Malta and getting a firsthand sense of what Pasmore fell in love with when he first visited in the late 1960s.”
