Recordings from Spring Concert in Albania

As a small update to the Albanian/European adventures earlier this spring, I have just received a recording of the concert with the Albanian Radio-Television Orchestra!  Recorded live at the Academy of Arts in Tirana, Albania, on March 21, 2013, with guest maestro Bujar Llapaj, and guest horn soloist Oliver de Clercq-- here is my horn concerto, 'Mosaic':

And the world premiere of my overture, 'Tides':

Should you ever be interested in finding the sheet music, the scores and orchestral parts for both pieces are available for loan/rental through the Canadian Music Centre (the CMC will send music anywhere in the world):

There is also a solo horn and piano arrangement of 'Mosaic', available for sale through the International Horn Society:!/~/product/category=0&id=6957407

Thanks again to so many of you for the continued support of my composing career... it's been a very busy and exciting year so far, and I look forward to another exciting year ahead!  I am currently working on two new pieces-- one for a Macedonian quartet, and the other for a bayan (button accordion) player based in Denmark, so stay tuned for some more musical adventures...

All the best for a relaxing summer!
