about

On June 10th, 1972, shortly after Anthony turned 27 years old, he gave a solo concert at Carnegie Recital Hall (today called Weill Recital Hall). Aside from a New York Times listing kept in Carnegie’s archives, we could find no visual or audio record of the event. Then, earlier this year (2012), a NYC musician contacted the Tri-Centric Foundation about mysterious tapes he had received from an acquaintance. To our surprise, one contained part of the 1972 solo Carnegie concert. Anthony listened to it and confirmed the content. The photo shows recording equipment owned by the person who recorded the concert: two tiny microphones attached to the sides of large dark glasses. We believe he used a similar setup to record Anthony’s concert, but with a normal cassette tape recorder instead of a DAT recorder.

It took 40 years, but the music made its way back to Anthony. An important part of Tri-Centric Foundation’s mission is to document and archive all of Anthony’s creative output. A very special thanks to the musician who noticed the cassette, contacted us, and then shared it with us.
