Description:
"Memories" is my first concerto and first piece with a solo violin. Its title and dedication to my wife Tammy stems from our mutual delight in spontaneous, improvised comic songs, most about our beloved cat Sambucca who shared our lives for 21 years (and was quite the music critic.) Many of these songs became our "standard repertoire" and even now, years after Sam's death, we still sing her songs to each other. These songs and snatches of song sneak their way into Memories, I hope in a way that no one will recognise except Tammy and me. The other memory enshrined in this piece is my grandfather, a passionate music lover and violin aficionado, who if he was disappointed that I chose to play clarinet hid it well. Of course, my first concerto had to be for violin.
