Premiere in Albania, March 2013!

Here is the big news I've been waiting to share: I will be traveling to Albania (Europe) again, towards the end of March, with Oliver de Clercq (principal horn, Vancouver Symphony Orchestra) for a very special performance.

Maestro Bujar Llapaj

The Orkestra Simfonike e RTSH (Albanian Radio-Television Orchestra), under the direction of Maestro Bujar Llapaj, will be giving the world premiere of my new orchestra work, 'Tides', as well as performing my horn concerto, 'Mosaic', with Oliver de Clercq as guest soloist.  Mr. de Clercq will also be performing R. Strauss' Horn Concerto No. 1.
