So excited that I finally recorded the first movement of Arpeggione Sonata, often performed by the cello. Many thanks to pianist, Mary Au.
Stay tuned for some fun and exciting classical & jazzy saxophone project released soon with pianist, Anton Smirnoff :)
Every couple of months...Getting my saxophone checked on minor leaks and key noise.
I really had a great time sharing a stage at the Liberty Hall at Astoria, Oregon for their Astoria Music Festival with cellist, Sergey Antonov and pianist, Ilya Kazantsev.
Looking forward to the Astoria Music Festival in Astoria, Oregon on June 16 & 22, 2018 playing Debussy's Rhapsody and Milhaud's Scaramouch both written for the saxophone and orchestra, and many more!
I am so excited that I have been performing with the Los Angeles Philharmonic! So far working with Susanna Mälkki, James Conlon, and John Adams has been so wonderful!
