Nocturne in D Flat

This is a piece that I wrote for my sister Emma for Christmas this year (2014). It is a nocturne for cello and piano in D flat major, which according to my friend and cellist in the recording, Quinn Boyack, is a nasty key for cello! But on the piano, its as rich as chocolate.

The Moon is Down

This is a new composition dedicated to Carissa. It features Emily Bateman as a soprano soloist, and Zach Kroff on cello. It is meant to capture the intimate moment between a single person and the vast night sky. Text by Sappho.
