Product Notes

Please note-this is a 15-minute long CD, and is priced accordingly. Old Vienna is a departure for me, as I compose primarily for piano. In 1992, I purchased a Korg synthetic module to provide a greater selection of sounds to play through an electronic keyboard, and when I heard 'Silk Strings', the first two movements of Old Vienna flowed out. The rest of the composition came more gradually, and at least one movement, Back Home, was adapted from a piano piece. Old Vienna evolved into it's present form around 1996, and since I compose/play by ear it took awhile to get it 'on paper'. I found The New American Quartet in an Internet search for a string quartet that was willing to perform new classical music, and they added some nice touches of their own. The CD has been well-received, with comparisons being made to a number of well-known composers (Mozart, Elgar and Bach, among others). Since I have provided for samples of all six movements, you'll get a comprehensive preview of the work. Thanks for listening.
