Current Works

I regularly perform solo concerts of both improvised and composed music. Programs can be modified to fit the individual concert situation. Most frequent are concert length performances that weave together fragments of my compositions with improvisation, making full use of the timbral palette of the contrabass. Recent repertoire concerts include works by Avram, Dumitrescu, Radulescu, Gubaidulina.

Self-Composed/Arr. Works for Double Bass

Interlocutions I (2017), Phosphene (2017), Transmogrificant I (2015), Metatrope(2015-2017), Domenico Scarlatti Sonata K34 arranged for solo bass (2014)
