At the end of the month, there will be two performances of an all-Eastman program in Paris, at the Bourse de Commerce. These performances will feature new arrangements of Eastman’s music performed by pianists Devonté Hynes and Adam Tendler, percussionist Jonathan Hepfer, and a seven-piece string ensemble.
A newly translated French edition of the book Gay Guerrilla, featuring crucial essays on Eastman’s work and featuring a new foreword by Hynes, is now available from Les Presses du réel.
