I was trying to get a couple of entries in about Durango before I went on to what's new, but I could never get around to writing them! Maybe I'll do a couple of memory entries later on :)
Right now I'm at the DFW airport waiting to board my flight to Amsterdam! I'm headed to Zlin in the Czech Republic to record two pieces by Carson Cooman with the Martinu Philharmonic. It's going to be so exciting! The two pieces I'm recording are titled Sinfonia Concertante (for solo violin and string orchestra), and Folk Fantasies (for solo violin, percussion, and string orchestra).
I've spent this past month since I got back from Durango tirelessly working on bowing, fingering and learning these pieces, so maybe that's why you haven't heard from me. It's been a really neat experience taking new music and giving it my own interpretation.
I'm really excited to finally experience what it's like to record with an orchestra. I will do my best to update every couple of days, depending on internet, so I can let you all know how it goes!
I'll see you all across the pond!!
