Program Notes

I wrote Improvisations for Solo Marimba while I was a student of John Heiss at New England Conservatory. It was composed in Cambridge, Massachusetts and completed in April of 2008. The first movement, Taksim, was selected as a winner of the Zeltsman Marimba Festival New Music Composition Contest, and was subsequently published by Edition Peters in 2009. Taksim was also recorded for Bridge Records by Ivana Bilic.
