2014 Performances: "The Wall"
in Los Angeles, new sextet premiere in St. Petersburgh, Russia.
Opaque Silence: Flash (Symbia III) US premiere
- Armenian violinist Lusine Harutyunyan, first prize, Malta International
Music Competition, gave the US premiere of my solo violin piece Opaque Silence: Flash (Symbia III),
February 25, 2014, CSU-Los Angeles.
The Wall: A Musical Misdeed
- The entire month of January was spent work-shopping and bringing
to life "The Wall", a musical adaptation of Jean Paul Sartre's short story. This one-hour,
one-act "non-opera" featured baritone Nicholas Isherwood. The creative trio of me, director Tanya Kane-Parry and
librettist Alicia Tycer are very proud of this work and look forward to future performances. Stay tuned.
Soundways-St. Petersburgh, Russia
- In November my new work for mixed sextet will be premiered in St. Petersburgh, during the 2014 Soundways festival.
The concert will be repeated in Los Angeles in early 2015 with the same US and Russian composers in attendance.
