In this video blog post, I am so excited to be interviewing Noam Aviel, the Associate Conductor of the San Antonio Symphony on her quarantine listening list that features underrepresented composers. The pieces she talks about are below the video. Please check it out!





Here are the pieces we discuss:


Chava Alberstein - Gaaguim

Clara Schumann - Piano Concerto, op. 7 **

Florence Price - Symphony No. 1

O'Hooley & Tidow - The Fragile

Bobby Timmons - This Here is Bobby Timmons

Sharon Farber - Translucent Rocks **


** This linked video is Noam Aviel's debut with the Sinfonietta Beer Sheva and includes a recording of both the Sharon Farber and the Clara Schumann pieces. Dorel Golan is the piano soloist on the Schumann.

Please join me for a wonderful conversation with flutist Brook Ferguson, principal flute of the Colorado Symphony and the River Oaks Chamber Orchestra, in which she shares her listening list for quarantine that includes wonderful and imaginative works of new music!




Some of Brook's recommendations can be found on the River Oaks Chamber Orchestra's (ROCO's) website here.


Thanks, also, to Brook for her comments about my piece for flute and piano, Gloamin. The commercial recording can be found here.
