I'm so excited! This spring I'm planning a violin recital. Yes, of music I adore - all modern pieces. In fact, one work is being written by a friend and colleague: Dick Strawser. Today he posted some musical examples (actually he's posted quite a bit about the process of the work so far! take a look at some of the early posts) and I've finally had a moment to exclaim, so here goes.
We played a movement last fall for WITF's Volunteer Appreciation luncheon, a nocturne. I enjoyed it alot and am looking forward to these next pieces.
Take a look at his post here.
