MUSIC

"The golden mean of truth in all things is no longer either known or appreciated. In order to win applause one must write stuff which is so inane that a coachman could sing it, or so unintelligible that it pleases precisely because no sensible man can understand it."

--W. A. Mozart, from a letter to his father, 28 December 1782
"Only art and science can raise men to the Godhead." ---Beethoven

 

     Ram jacket 2010Composed by humble self. As performances are recorded they replace the preliminary electronic renditions. You can download MP3 audio files , and also the Finale scores themselves. Download the free Finale software to read these scores here. (Unfortunately this reader will not work with Finale 2014 scores, which include my recent compositions. I list scores and parts in PDF format.) For accuracy in Finale, sometimes you will need to download and install fonts which will be indicated. When possible I now include videos, which you can also see on

my YouTube channel.

Each composition has its own page with a link from here. Pieces are listed in alphabetical order in each category. Works for large ensembles have chamber versions. Please let me know if something doesn't function correctly so that I can repair it. Extended pieces and major works for large forces have links in larger type
