I’m absolutely thrilled to announce that Sandburg Songs has been released on Albany Records. My portrait CD features the renowned soprano Tony Arnold with Zohn Collective and conductor Tim Weiss in my large-scale song cycle based on Carl Sandburg’s Chicago Poems, along with four other chamber works that span a decade of creative work. These works are scored for solo piano (Inner Truth), solo guitar (They Say), clarinet and violin duo (Noticing), and a trio for clarinet, violin, and piano (In Search of Planet X) and represent different points in my artistic output. The musicians are stellar, and it feels great to finally share this music with the broader public. I am especially grateful to the entire team at Albany Records and Oberlin Conservatory, including recording engineer Paul Eachus, and to my friend, the video artist, David Colagiovanni, whose art are found on the album cover and throughout the liner notes. The disc is available for purchase online here.
