'BALDI BUDDY OL' PAL to be performed May 18, 2022 as part of NYCC's "MASTERS OF MODERNISM" concert

'BALDI BUDDY OL' PAL, my composition for piano solo based on Girolamo Frescobaldi's Cento Partite Sopra Passacaglia, will be performed in its professional world premiere as part of The New York Composers Circle upcoming "Masters of Modernism" concert.  My piece is a set of variations which is itself built upon a set of variations, including a jazz variation.  The piece explores various piano styles old and new, based on Frescobaldi's motivic material, and will be performed by the extraordinary concert pianist Christopher Oldfather.  'Baldi Buddy Ol' Pal was first premiered by award-winning virtuoso pianist Llewellyn Sanchez-Werner as part of The Juilliard School Evening Division composition readings.
