I’m just back from a recording session at Wyastone Hall in Monmouth, Wales, where violinist Harriet Mackenzie and the English Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Ken Woods, recorded my piece for violin and string orchestra, falling still. They sound fantastic! Other pieces on the CD include violin concertos by Paul Patterson, David Matthews, Deborah Pritchard, and Robert Fokkens. This is my first orchestral recording, and my first time being included on a CD of British composers, so I’m extra excited about this, and really looking forward to hearing the whole thing, when it is released on Nimbus Records in April!
I just finished Three Summer Pieces for the Cherry Street flute duo, commissioned by Sophia Tegart (with funding from the Mu Phi Epsilon Foundation James and Lola Faust Chamber Music Grant). They’ll be recording it for CD in March, and performing it later this year. I’m really looking forward to hearing them!
My CD all spring, performed by the Seattle Chamber Players and friends, and recorded on the Composers Concordance label is now available from Naxos, Amazon, the Canadian Music Centre, the Scottish Music Centre, and probably elsewhere!
The first review of the CD is here, on Gapplegate Classical-Modern Review.
I’m pleased to announce that the release party for my new CD all spring will be held on June 10 at 7:00 at the Jack Straw Cultural Center in Seattle. The CD includes five of my chamber pieces, performed by the Seattle Chamber Players and friends, and will be released on the Composers Concordance label. I’ll post more details about this event closer to the date.
