Music review

October 25, 2003

I would like to clarify a point made by Mark Swed in his review of Pacific Chorale's performance of John Adams' "On the Transmigration of Souls" ("Souls in a Highly Vocal Transmigration," Oct. 21). Of the timing of this premiere, Swed speculates, "Could it be that by programming it, [music director John] Alexander was simply trying to capitalize on the presence of Adams this week in Los Angeles" and goes on further to comment that "Certainly, the performance felt like attempted stolen thunder."

I can assure you it was simply and only a matter of which date was available to us this fall, in the ever-bustling Segerstrom Hall (389 public performances will be presented this season).
