This was mentioned in today's links section (10/31/04) and I'll be very curious to know more about it. A local modern dance company (Seattle, WA) acquired Bebe Miller's work to Hendricks' music, and negotiated with his estate for permission to use the recordings -- when they came back to the estate to request permission for additional performances they were turned down. I imagine that the rights situation is slightly different with an orchestrated version, and if this is a one-off performance it hardly matters, but I wonder what might happen if they wanted to keep the work around.

To quote the eminently quotable Sir Anton Dolin, "Why it would cost more money, my dear. Everybody's a whore in this business. The only interesting part is haggling over the price." :devil:
