Concertos is a disc that I and all of the artists featured on it have been working on for years. Initial recording took place in 2011 in Zlin, Czech Republic with the Bohuslav Martinu Philharmonic. Some years separted these recordings and the more recent ones from Brno with the superb Brno Philharmonic orchestra and Mikel Toms.
The works on this disc span a period of about eight years of my creative life and move between dramatic and assertive music to music marked by fragility, tenderness and emotion. The performances are uniformly excellent and the audio quality is something about which we are proud!
For your consideration—please do think of this terrific disc when nominating season comes around!!
