Sonata for Clarinet and Piano: Flight of Fancy(13mins.)

Stephen Bates-Clarinet

Naoko Sugiyama-Piano

"Flight", the 1st movement, was recorded in a concert on 4/14/2013 at The Longy School, Cambridge, Mass.

"Grounded" and "Up again" are digital renderings of the scores

The first movement for this piece was written in the early 1990's for Stephen Bates.  He and I performed it in concert in Greenwich Village, 1992.  21 years later Stephen played "Flight" again in concert;this time at The Longy Music School in Cambridge, Mass which inspired me to start writing concert music again. What followed has been 20 new compositions I've written in the last two years..

Elegy for an ailing Planet(11 minutes)

This is a short orchestral piece that I wrote while reading Naomi Klein's book, "This Changes Everything" about climate change. IT is possibly the first movement of a longer piece.
