I wanted to let you know about my Centrediscs CD release party of Myth, Legend, Romance at the Canadian Music Centre, 20 St. Joseph Street, Tuesday, Dec. 16 at 7:30.
Three of my concertos are on the CD: Persephone and Demeter, for violin, viola, and orchestra which we recorded with my daughter, Erika on violin, Rivka Golani on viola, and the Regina Symphony Orchestra; Sherwood Legendfor French horn with Kurt Kellan on horn and the Calgary Philharmonic; and my Concerto for Violin (Faces of Woman) with Erika and the Sneak Peek Orchestra recorded last spring in Toronto.
Rivka Golani happened to be touring Canada at this time and was able to stop over in Toronto on her way back to England so we scheduled the launch when she could be here to perform. She and Erika will be accompanied by Rachel Andrist in an abridged and narrated (by me) version of Persephone and Demeter. Also, Erika will play a movement of the violin concerto.

I acknowledge the financial support of FACTOR, the Government of Canada through the Department of Canadian Heritage (Canada Music Fund) and of Canada’s Private Radio Broadcasters.
Neal just updated his web page and my Olmutz Concerto is front and centre! He’s a spectacular player and has also started a kickstarter program that specializes in classical music. Have a listen to his version of the Olmutz…

This guy is amazing. Sergio Carolino, the fellow who recorded my Requiem for Wounded Knee with Roger Bobo narrating, has invented a sort of a tuba he calls the Lusophone (click the image to see it). Take a listen to his latest on his MySpace site at www.myspace.com/thetubab.
How Bodies Leave Ecstatic Marks is now available as a download on iTunes. You can click on the album artwork to download the album or some of the tracks.
(Please note that iTunes does not allow the purchase of any individual track that is longer than 10 minutes…therefore, some of the tracks might only be available with a full album download. Click on Apple iTunes to take you to the download page if you don’t have iTunes already installed.)
