This weekend in addition to my photo shoot in LA, I have also been working on my new wind orchestra piece for Tom Leslie and the UNLV wind orchestra, which will feature a jazz combo. The piece is called “Bordello Nights.”
Here are the live recordings from the premiere of “Songs of Ethereality” for soprano and piano on December 1, 2014. The performance took place at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, featuring mezzo-soprano Julia Bentley, and pianist Timothy Hoft. This is a set of three songs: “Air and Angels,” “The Distant,” and “Perhaps Not to Be.” The song “The Distant” was originally written for soprano, flute, alto sax, and piano, and was premiered in Greece July 2014 by the Ritsos Project.
