New York City
Admission to the concert is free. The Museum accepts your kind donation if you wish.
I will perform selections from my new CD, Tangent Shores - Amethyst.
- Three Preludes by Garrett Shatzer
- Four Postcards by Richard Cionco
- The Road Less Traveled by Devin Farney
- Phantasmagoria by Talia Amar
- Seasons of New York by Waddy Thompson.
Vocal guests will perform Mihoko's song-cycle "And the Hummingbird Sez...," inspired by Wangari Maathai, the first African woman to receive the Nobel Peace Prize, with a libretto by Martin Rowe.
Mihoko and I will join forces at the end to perform Mihoko's pyro-rhythmic in-your-face piano four-hands "Ode to Number 14." I heard Mihoko's piece on The NYFA Collection, Vol. 2 (available from Innova Recordings and iTunes. I liked it so much, I sent her fan mail and invited her to perform it with me, and she said yes! I can't wait to perform it with her for you.
If you missed my last appearance at the Nicholas Roerich Museum, you have another chance to hear the remaining tracks of my new CD and get your own pre-release copy before it comes out on Composers Concordance Records in April!
