Hello everyone~ been a long time since the last post. Hope this finds everyone doing well and healthy! I can’t believe I haven’t posted since September 2008–I can pretty much blame Facebook for that–which takes up the time we have to share everything going on in our lives. Working on getting two new works ready for premieres: Richard Danielpour’s “Mirrors” for piano and orchestra, and, William Bolcom’s “Prometheus” for piano, orchestra and chorus–both to be performed with the Pacific Symphony in 2010. Created the first worldwide commissioning project which will feature a new work for piano and orchestra by Ellen Taaffe Zwilich. Premiere will hopefully be 2011-12, as there are several orchestras on board at the moment. Working with a new manager in Hamburg, Kevin Wood, who is very dedicated and very well rounded. This year also brought a beautiful orchestration by Lucas Richman for my ‘Hanukah Fantasy for choir and orchestra. The LeDor Group, Lucas’ company, will have it available through their web site. The Hal Leonarde Corporation will have the SATB/piano version.
Please let me know how you are doing–hope we’ll stay in touch–and feel free to stop by Facebook where so many of us have re-acquainted or become new friends.
