I was very pleased by the recent premieres of the following works:
- Chaconne for string trio & harpsichord (2015). Premiered October 4, 2015 by
Tigran Vardanyan, violin; Melissa Matson, viola; and Ahrim Kim, cello. I played the harpsichord. First Muse Chamber Music (Rochester, NY)
- Interlude for guitar, & The Windhover for soprano, alto flute, guitar, and vibraphone (both 2015). Premiered November 6, 2015 by guitarist Dieter Hennings, soprano Leah Brzyski, flutist Emlyn Johnson, and percussionist Brant Blackard. Hatch Hall, Eastman (Rochester, NY)
The Interlude and The Windhover were performed alongside my song from earlier this year, Heaven-Haven. The program was repeated on November 8 at Ithaca College (Ithaca, NY).
The Chaconne will be repeated on November 24 in Kilbourn Hall (Rochester, NY). That performance will be by Hanna Hurwitz, violin; Alex Trygstad, viola; and Dan Ketter, cello. Again, I will play the harpsichord.
Stay tuned for recordings of these new works!
Also: a thank you to Dan Albertson for the kind mention in this recent article, published online at La Folia: Eight Beacons.
