As part of the Twelve in 12 program featuring NOVUS NY with conductor Julian Wachner performing 12 different works by the 12 recent Pulitzer Prize winners in Music Composition at Trinity Wall Street, NYC, Tempest Fantasy was performed on September 6, 2012. The New York Times said of Tempest Fantasy,
“This is indeed a well-wrought creation, heavily influenced by Gershwin in its jazz-leaning harmonies and its plain-spoken lyricism but with a voice of its own. Geoffrey Burleson thrived on a piano part that becomes at times almost concertolike.”
Note: Tempest Fantasy begins at approximately 55:30.
