Preludes, Problems & Prayers keeps people warm

There is now a stack of CDs at Memorial Baptist Church on Fairfield Ave. in Hartford. If you purchase one from the church, you will support the new furnace fund :)

Preludes, Problems & Prayers is released!
I'm happy to announce the release of Preludes, Problems & Prayers!

Funded by a Kickstarter campaign last April, this is a collection of music by established and emerging composers. I corresponded with the five living composers and received their feedback on practice recordings, then recorded the CD at Northfire Recording Studio in Amherst. I've loved living with this music for the last several months. I have not loved trying to be my own graphic designer, but that's another story. Now I can share this music with you!

The pieces are
Reel - Homage to Henry Cowell by Lou Harrison
Secret & Glass Gardens by Jennifer Higdon
selections from Twenty-four Preludes by Steven O'Brien
Op. 21 no. 2 by Pavel Konyukhov
selections from Problems for Piano by Jake Bellissimo
Semplice and Sky of the Eternal by Gwyneth Walker
