Although composers rely upon multiple muses throughout their lifetimes, they find their proximate inspiration in the artists surrounding them. I have been blessed through association with countless gifted musicians who have offered the gift of performing my music, often in fruitful collaboration.
And I am very grateful.
The select samples below, organized by genre, provide an introduction to premieres of my work. See the WORK PAGE to link to many more pieces on Vimeo & YouTube.
