Fiddlers' Fugue
In cart Not available Out of stock
$12.99

Fiddlers' Fugue, completed for a composition competition, this piece was recorded in a studio on the South Shore of Boston, then digitally remastered along with the Messaien and Ysaye pieces which can be heard on the Recital tape available at Recordings. 1979-81. The theme is based on that of the Duettino for two violins by Shilakowsky, written more than twenty years before this piece was conceived. Dreamy, slightly dissonant. Not a strict fugue, bluesy modality clashes with modernity.

Elegy for Sharon
In cart Not available Out of stock
$6.99

Sharon Gewirtz was a serious professional violinist, teacher of the violin friend and supporter of fine music. This piece was written to remember her and her music. It was premiered by the composer at a memorial concert on June 26, 2007 in First Parish Unitarian Universalist Church in Arlington. The music contains gentle references to other composers and Jewish influences. I intended it to be solemn yet not overly sad, but rather to reflect on the beauty and joy that music brings to our lives and that Sharon brought to so many, as shown by the outpouring of expression from so many friends and associates.
