Did you make it to Carnegie Hall in May? It was a wonderful CD release concert from Trio Casals for Moto Bello. Many thanks to Ovidiu Marinescu, Sylvia Arahmjian, and Anna Kislitsyna for their incredible performance. and to all the folks at Parma Recordings for putting together such a marvelous CD and coordinating the concert. And I'm incredible pleased and honored to officially be part of the next Trio Casals CD, which will be released in 2020. Look for more news on that in the months to come.
I've just come off of a couple of very busy weeks as well. I've been threatening to hop into the Rapido! competition since it was launched, and I finally took up the challenge. Every other year, composers are challenged to write a piece start to finish in just 14 days. It was great fun, and now the work is in the hands of the judges. I'll know if I'm onto the next round in August!
Summertime is a slow time for me on the performance front, which gives me the opportunity to catch up on a number of things. I have more time to devote to composing, and to some administrative responsibilities that too often get neglected in the rush and bustle of day-to-day life. Keep an eye on my Facebook page, as well as the website, for updates and opportunities to get your hands on some sheet music!
On the radio side of the world, I have two special programs I am proud to host. Feminine Fusion airs every Sunday at 1:00pm (Eastern), and highlights the accomplishments of women in the classical music world, and each episode has a theme. If there is a woman you think should be included, by all means get in touch and let me know! And I play music Fresh From the Wrapper every Thursday afternoon at 1:00pm Eastern time, featuring new Classical releases. The playlist is published every Thursday morning right here .
