Devil Sticks for 5 clarinets by Scott McALLISTER

Six Bagatelles for Woodwind Quintet by György LIGETI

Clarinet Quintet for Clarinet in A and strings by Piet SWERTS

Date: MONDAY, NOV. 9, 2009

Location: Kopleff Recital Hall

Note the special start time: 7:00 PM

It will be a slightly shorter program than usual (sorry no reception this time) because we want to encourage students and audience members to attend the GSU Wind Ensemble concert that takes place at 8 PM that same night in the Rialto Center. They will be featuring the music of composer John Mackey.

Hope you can attend both concerts!

Download, read and use some of the ideas in there. Enjoy!

CD Reviews

Hi all -

Brian Skutle was kind enough to write some good, fair reviews of my CDs here.

You can listen to my CDs on Last.FM, and of course I would be ecstatic if you liked them and wanted to buy a copy, or a couple tracks on iTunes!

Late Frost (New Age/minimalist piano)
Parallel Lives (electroacoustic/experimental)

In other news, I am preparing my PhD applications. I put my contenders for my portfolio on my latest blog. If you have time and want to put in your two cents on the pieces, I would be very interested to hear them!
