One of the things I really enjoy as a professor at the IAA is working with students on their music. Here is a documentation of a work in progress by Bart Bruinsma who was an exhange student (from Groningen) in the spring. It was such a pleasure working with Bart and he taught me how to fall - see two minutes into the video!
Happy to share this, it's "only" been six years since Tiffany DuMouchelle (voice), Pablo Gómez Cano (guitar) and I premiered this wonderful piece by Anna Thorvaldsdóttir.
Here is a short video from a rehearsal last Friday in Mengi. The fellow who is playing with me is Stephen Dorocke who plays the very lovely instrument Resophone. You can listen to it here. Our show last Friday in Mengi also featured double bass player Julian Thayer, who also does interesting stuff in other fields.
So honored to be a part of this team, a post concert picture, John and his former and current students.
I enjoyed playing A Time That Is Also a Place by Scott Worthington in Mengi on December 23. Below is a short excerpt:
The concerto for Lokkur and Orchestra by Guðmundur Steinn Gunnarsson was premiered during Nordic Music Days. Here is a recording from the concert, available until January 2017. Performed by Caput Ensemble along with myself on Lokkur.
