It’s been a fantastic few months since I wrote last here. Our family welcomed a baby boy to the crew. We call him Johannes, which often reminds me of Johannes Brahms, one of the great Romantic composers that I look up to, and whose music inspired me to write my first symphony.
I have played several concerts, and Diana Golden premiered my piece “Jorden är så full av färg” for solo cello, that she commissioned a couple of years ago. I had the privilege of listening in on a livestream on October 23. And you can listen to the piece at the YouTube link, from Washington College, in Chestertown, Maryland.
I had promised that I would post the improved audio files of my symphony. Sadly I have had severe technical difficulties making it happen, but the second movement worked out for some unknown reason. Enjoy! As soon as I can make it work, I will share the other three movements.
