New commission finished! Recently, my wonderful duo partner, EunHye Grace Choi, and I received a grant from the Co-Op Press fund to record a CD together this next spring. It will be a recording of American saxophone sonatas by William Albright, Sy Brandon, David Biedenbender, and Jennifer Higdon. The piece by Sy Brandon was written especially for Grace and myself. It is a fun, light-hearted sonata for the tenor saxophone and piano called Sonata "Funtasies". It was just recently completed and if you are interested in checking it out, Dr. Brandon posted it on his composing blog. To read about the piece in detail and his process of composing it, you can check out the blog here. You can also just view the score and listen to a midi-realized recording here. We are definitely looking forward to premiering it this upcoming Fall!
