The slow expressive movement from Symphony No 5, composed in 2017.

Story

The second movement of my 2nd Symphony is a short piece with a lot of rhythmic momentum, which is finally broken and melts into a passionate short release before returning to the march-like main theme. The melodic idea possessed me for a whole day before I could figure out what to do with it. Once I started writing, it just took over! This energetic, almost sardonic movement makes a good contrast to the surrounding, more passionate and introspective movements.

It is scored for normal, modern symphony orchestra.

The Tucson Folk Festival is an annual event that features countless styles of acoustic music, mostly in the folk tradition. To begin my set of mostly symphonic works on 12-string guitar, I decided to do my most "folksy". "bluegrassy" piece. Yeeee-hah! It's a foot stomping, fun, and challenging little number that I hope you'll enjoy listening to.

Recently completed and as yet unperformed, this is the technically challenging and exciting final movement to the 3rd concerto. The actual music for the movement was taken from a piece performed by my fusion ensemble, Beyond words, many years ago. It was entitled the 8th Voyage of Sinbad. Using the main theme, I greatly expanded and orchestrated it. I hope to have this 3-movement concerto performed some day.
