From 2005 to 2008 I resumed piano studies under the direction of the Brazilian operatic composer and pianist Samuel Kardos, who was in Boston to study at Berklee and is now at the The Piano School of New York City. In that time I composed a dozen or so short pieces for solo piano.
In 2013 I worked with Steve Giles, also a Berklee trained composer (now in Colorado) who developed the work into a wonderfully austere processional hymn for brass quintet. The work is inspired by Keith Jarrett's improvisational solo concerts and the work of Philip Glass.
The piece was first performed at the deCordova Museum on January 4, 2014. The full score and individual parts can be downloaded here and an audio file is posted here. A second (professionally recorded) performance is tentatively scheduled for January 2015.
