To the Pointe: David Rosenthal on “The Typewriter”
Gong, chimes, woodblocks . . . typewriter?
In this special edition of To The Pointe, David Rosenthal, SF Ballet Orchestra’s Principal Percussionist, discusses his role in composer Leroy Anderson’s most famous novelty number, “The Typewriter,” one of eleven pieces in Mark Morris’s Sandpaper Ballet, onstage February 11–22.
At the end of the podcast, David performs a snippet of the piece with help from PR & Communications Manager Kate McKinney, who “chimes” in with the carriage return.
