Click here for a review in the San Francisco Examiner of my recent solo recital at The Center For New Music San Francisco where I played music by Charles Nichols, Mark Engebretson, Sidney Corbett, Andrew List, Kurt Rohde, Jeff Herriot and Mari Takano:  Il Prete Rosso, a piece I commissioned from Charles Nichols, will also be presented at the New York City Electroacoustic Music Festival on June 26 at the Abrons Art Center in New York City.  This video is from the world premiere at the 3rd Practice festival in Richmond, Virginia last November.




In June of 2011 I had the pleasure of performing the North American premiere of Sidney Corbett’s violin concerto Yaël at the Chamber Music Midwest Festival in WisconsiThe live recording of that concert was so haunting and expressive that I decided to release Yaël on a CD.  The only question was, with what?Later that summer after playing Christopher Adler’s violin piece Jolie Sphinx on solo recitals in Berlin I asked him to write me a concerto and was thrilled when he said yes.  Now, four years later, this project comes to fruition and I am honored to introduce these two beautiful, original and quite striking works to a larger public.
