A Time Long Gone
Matthew Raftovich was born in New Jersey and raised in Ohio. He orginally pursued a career in physics but quickly realized that he was not interested in physics. The thought of being a musician never occurred to him, but after playing Rock Band with his friends, he realized that he wanted play drums as a profession. Realizing that he did not desire that either, he now wants to write music and craft sounds for video games. Never imagining that he would write music for string quartet and wind quintet but always relishing a challenge, Matt threw himself into this next trial. Today’s recital will display his very first attempt at writing music for a wind quintet plus added percussion.
