Peter Salett

Last night my friend--and sometimes collaborator--Peter Salett performed his Suite For The Summer Rain at Rockwood Music Hall's intimate Stage 3. It's a unique presentation--a 37 minute dreamscape beautifully performed by Peter on vocals and acoustic guitar, backed with strings and gentle percussion. Peter introduced the piece by asking the audience to hold any applause until the end--a request that has the effect of creating a delicate and warm listening experience that's rare in this day and age. I look forward to seeing what happens next with this work; Peter performs it again at Rockwood in April.
