There's a lot of music to look thru!

The Yovana is a wonderful pc. Cavatina does an incredible job with it
Seems like a modern interpretation, very effective
Congratulations! :bravo:

Thanks Classitar! I'm glad you enjoyed Yovano. It was actually kind of a tough piece to write because the folk song that it's based on doesn't really have much music in it. And it was difficult to come up with a concert piece based on so little material.

By the way, the Cavatina Duo just released the CD with this piece on it. The CD also has some pieces by Clarice Assad that are just incredible.

Thanks again,
Mike

Thanks Sean! I'm really glad to hear you enjoyed "Sonatina California." It was a tough piece to write, although I'm not sure why. And I still can't decide if I'm totaly happy with it, so it's good to know that you like it. :)

New Free Score Available

"Rain" for solo guitar is now available for free download at my website. It was written for James Day and will be premiered Sunday in Philadelphia. Please always feel free to contact me with any questions or comments. Here's a note about the piece:

"I wrote "Rain" for James Day, and we both liked the idea of music that could appeal to young audiences. I wasn't interested in composing an outright children's piece, but instead tried to write a concert piece that is as clear, direct, and engaging as possible. The concept of evoking rain in different seasons came fairly late in the process, while I was working on "Fall," which was originally slated to be the third movement. But with a few adjustments to existing music everything fell into place."

Thank you for posting this Michael. I'm a big fan of your music, though I listen to it much better than I play it!

Thanks oski! This one is a bit easier than other pieces I've written. The second movement, "Fall" should be the easiest to read. :)

Sorry this didn't happen! What piece did you write for Denis? I'm one of his students.

Hi,

I wrote two pieces for Denis and Eugenia, "Roominating" and "Yovano, Yovanke." Hope you're enjoying studying with him. :)
