Concierto de Aranjuez: My Orchestral Debut

About a year ago I began working on the Concierto de Aranjuez by Joaquín Rodrigo. Through medical appointments for my wife, legal proceedings with a bad landlord, insurance companies, a major move, two smaller moves, no heat and heat, new friends and not, recording a CD for my New Lullaby Project, and premiering 2 New Lullabies, I have continued onwards. As the ant kept on marching and the little train did, I kept on.

My work with the amazing pianist Sarah Takagi is done. I am grateful for continuous support, and demonstrating that music is so much more than notes, and so much better when it comes with the love of others. Beethoven would call it brotherhood.

Tomorrow is rehearsal #1 with the Waltham Symphony Orchestra. Patrick Botti will be conducting, and I will be solo-ing. #’s 2 & 3 will follow and Saturday will be another concert; another beautiful day for creating music. Will you listen?

When we accept that the power of sound is stronger than the sound of power we will be at peace.
