NEW WORK! Piano Sonata in C minor, Op. 45

I am pleased to present my newest composition, which took a lot longer than I wanted to finish. It’s my first piano sonata and is in my favorite key of C minor. As is customary with a piano sonata, it has three movements and is 21 minutes long all total. I hope you enjoy  it!

I dedicate this piece to my dear friend and fellow composer, Jeffrey Brody.

IN CHARACTER – Episode 2 News

The first episode of IN CHARACTER has been very well received. But it was a bit lacking in the music department due to time issues. That said, episode 2 is chock full of music – lots of new material. Music production for episode 2 has just wrapped up as of today and the music is being married to the video in post-production. The next episode is just one or two (or less) days away! Stay tuned.

First Full Trailer for “In Character”

I mentioned about a month and a half ago that I was selected to compose music for an upcoming documentary called “In Character”. The first couple of teasers featured my composition “Haunted by Memories”, but now I am proud to present the first full trailer for the documentary, which features new material composed specifically for the documentary.

Composing for an upcoming documentary!

I have been selected as the composer for a new documentary which will premiere on the web this summer. I will be composing some new material as well as pulling from my extensive catalog of works for filler material. My latest composition, “Haunted by Memories”, Op. 44 will be used in the documentary as well.

Stay tuned for more on this and other stuff.

New Composition & Piano Sonata Update

NEW COMPOSITION

I took a short break from composing my first piano sonata to work on a new piece of music that seemed to just come out of nowhere. It’s the Klavierstück No. 11 in F minor, Op. 44 which I have titled “Haunted by Memories”. It’s a very different style piece that I am used to writing, but I think you’ll enjoy it.

PIANO SONATA UPDATE

I haven’t had a great deal of time to devote to finishing this work. But I do intend to work on it as much as I can and hopefully it will be finished sometime in the next 1-2 months. The first movement is finished, the second movement is halfway there as is the third movement. So all I can say is stay tuned.

Piano Sonata Update

Well I won’t be able to deliver the Piano Sonata in the timeframe I expected. A lot of other things have come up that have taken my time away from it. But I am working on it as much as I can, so I am now moving the completion target to mid-March. But stay tuned, it will be worth the wait.

New Work Coming in about a month!

I have a new work under wraps which I am hoping to have finished by mid-February. It’s going to be my first Piano Sonata and I am really excited about it. It’s life began way back in March 2014 when the idea came to me. I sketched the piece out on paper and just kept tinkering with the first and second themes until I felt it was good. But I didn’t decide to start composing the piece until the end of November. The second and third movement themes came shortly before Christmas. I started composing the second and third movement around that time, but eventually realized the second theme of the second movement just wasn’t fitting, so I scrapped it until I could come up with something more appropriate. That happened the first week of January.

Last week I finished work on the first movement and I am now turning my attention to the second movement, while tinkering with the third. I am very happy with how the first movement came out and have only made a couple small tweaks to it for performance.

I look forward to releasing this new work for you to hear. If all goes well, I should be able to meet my anticipated timeline for completion.

This will be my 67th composition since I began writing classical music back in 1993. Stay tuned!
