Transcription: Rachmaninoff Sonata, Opus 19



I love playing the Rachmaninoff Cello Sonata on the viola, and I'm happy that the International Music Company liked my transcription (which can be used with the original piano part)! You can get it through the International Music Company's online shop.

Woodwind Quintet No. 2





April 6, 2017

This ten-minute-long piece for woodwind quintet would be interesting and entertaining for school-age children (and hopefully adults and wind players as well). The four movements relate to the four winds: west, east, south, and north. The cover art is a painting by my mother, June Fine.
