I was thrilled and excited to have the New York premiere of my work for ‘cello and piano, Novella (Chapter One), on 16th November 2019, performed by two young star performers, Thomas Mesa and Yoon Lee. Fascinatingly, this performance took place in the private home of Ellen and Fred Harris in NYC; I was very sad I missed what must have been a wonderful venue and performance.
Mesa said of this recital: “Yoon and I are so excited to share these terrific works! Each piece is by a living composer and was selected from hundreds that were submitted in a Call for Scores competition by the record label, PARMA Recordings. We will be recording these pieces later in November.” – Cellist Thomas Mesa
