Hear Miika Gregg premiere this work by a 2020 National Composers Intensive participant, from their living room.
Good to You is somewhere in between “I promise to be good to you,” “Have I not been good to you?,” and “Was it good to you?”
I wanted to make the performance feel as if the audience is hearing the soloist’s inner monologue spilling out. The music is like replaying fragments of past conversations, contemplating things you’ve said, things you should have said, and the right ways to say them once you get the chance. The tone ranges from sweetly soft to passionately loud, but it’s always with love.
