New music for accordion

bachtostpetesI will be performing some of my own music with the Bachtopus Accordion Ensemble on Sunday October 9, 2016 in Chelsea in NYC.
Sunday, Oct 9, 2016
4:00 pm
St. Peter’s Church
346 W. 20th Street, between 8th and 9th Avenues
New York, NY

$10 suggestion donation – proceeds to their food pantry program

We will be playing three compositions of mine for accordion ensemble: Vegetative States, Halfway, and my newest work, High Summer: Brood V inspired by the annual emergence of the cicadas. These are all part of what I call my ambient classical project – very meditative and evocative – they should sound fabulous in the lovely live space at St. Peter’s. In addition the group will be playing music by Bach, Philip Glass, Arvo Pärt, and other contemporary composers.

I’ll be performing with my colleagues Robert Duncan, Mayumi Miyaoka, Denise Koncelik and Jeanne Velonis in our first formal indoor concert. (We’ve played out in the parks a great deal during the past two summers.)

It should be a fun and unique sounding concert in a great space and will last about an hour. Children welcome.

7:00 pmto9:00 pm

I’ve just confirmed that internationally acclaimed Camerata Romeu will be premiering the string orchestra version of my piece, Dance Dance Dance, in Havana Cuba on Saturday, July 18! They are the first all women’s string orchestra in Latin America and fabulous group of musicians. I’m very excited and honored to have them playing my music! If anyone happens to be in Havana that night, plan on coming to the concert at the Basilica in Habana Vieja at the corner of Oficios and Amargura streets. It should be a great show! (Not sure of the exact time. When I find out, I’ll post it here.)

New Afro-Cuban chamber music in Sept!

September 16, 2014 8:00 pmtoSeptember 29, 2014 9:00 pm

I’m very excited about my latest piece, We Speak Too Much of Danger, for violin and piano and scheduled to be premiered by the fantastic and internationally acclaimed Gregory Fulkerson and Thomas Rosenkranz in September in Ohio, New York, and Delaware.

The piece is inspired by a recent trip to Havana, Cuba and uses as its starting point the rhythms of Afro-Cuban music. I had a great time writing this piece and working very closely with Greg and Tom through a number of drafts and revisions as we tightened and tweaked the work.

It will be featured on a program entitled “Beyond Minimalism” which will explore the progress of contemporary music from the late Minimal era into our current Post-Minimal era. The program will include music by Philip Glass, John Adams, Conrad Cummings, Peter Flint, Stephen Dembski, and Andrew Shapiro, much of which is new music written for Greg and Tom for this program.

Accordion in City Hall Park

June 21, 2014
2:00 pmto7:00 pm

On June 21 in City Hall Park, NYC, I’ll be playing solo accordion at 2pm (featuring jazz, classical, and maybe some original music) and then at 5pm I’ll be performing with an accordion quartet playing classical and contemporary music with Rob Duncan, Denise Koncelik, and Mayumi Miyaoka. In between there will be other accordionists performing as well. All part of the Make Music NY summer solstice festival. I believe the day will culminate in a massed accordion performance of Terry Riley’s In C at 7pm.

It promises to be good fun. Come drop by and hang out in one of NYC’s lovely pocket-sized parks!

 


Solo Accordion in Bryant Park

June 10, 2014
5:00 pmto6:00 pm

At 5pm on June 10, I will be performing solo accordion music in Bryant Park, NYC for an hour as part of the Accordions Around the World Festival. It’s a great afterwork festival in the park every Tuesday, featuring six different accordionist playing in different corners of the park. You can wander around and take us all in.

I’ll be playing some classical, some jazz, as well as a few other more odd-ball pieces. Rain or shine. If it looks wet, they’ll put a tent over me!

So if you’re in the neighborhood, stop by after work and chill out in the park. Should be a very pleasant time.
