You can’t seemingly find a more insider composer than David Del Tredici, whose “Bullycide” was commissioned by La Jolla Music Society’s SummerFest and will have its premiere Friday night in Sherwood Auditorium of the Museum of Contemporary Arts San Diego.
He’s won a Pulitzer Prize and been composer-in-residence of the New York Philharmonic. He’s on teh faculty of City College of New York and is a member of the American Academy and Institute of Arts adn Letters. He has been, in his music, obsessed with “Alice in Wonderland.” “Paul Revere” has been a subject of interest. He is very good at dazzling audiences.
