Jazz, Tango, Blues, New Music, Roots Music, and More
Think of my website as a virtual performance center where people from many countries can listen to this music. A variety of groups are performing, from solo guitar to a large jazz orchestra, and there are many kinds of music to explore.
Gina's Waltz was composed in 1993 for Gina Eichman, a Baltimore-based classical flutist. She and Robert Vierschilling performed this piece as a flute & guitar duo in a benefit concert I organized that year for the Chesapeake Bay Foundation. It features the lower range of the flute (measures 12-22 can be played an octave higher for contrast) and has a playful spirit. Recorded by David Arivett, ensemble demo.
