Well, here are the 5 short flute/piano pieces (1/17) Op. 123. 2,4 are short and fast...3,5 are slower with the last movement being a meditation. I'll try to put up a score  My cousin Terry is always up for a flute piece but, as I've said, the flute isn't a natural mode of expression for me when in solo form.

This work, "At the River" is scored for 11 players. It's the 1st movement of my sinfonia 18.

1-21...before the conference championship games(NFL) are to be on TV, I've extended the final movement of the 18th piano sonata...

And here's an audio file of my 18 th Sinfonia 2nd movement, which I just finished (for now).

Here we go...an improved version of the 18th sinfonia for 11 players. I was going to make it three movements but changed my mind and will leave it at two. Since both movements have a variety of tempi and the arc of the piece doesn't call for it I'll make it a wrap. Though some seasoning will, I'm sure, be added. I've added an interlude after the first mov. I simply wanted to compose a little more for the group...
The 1st movement unvarnished score is at my blog.

I've completed two more short piano pieces from a set of preludes and dances. The works are both highly canonic in nature, though it's difficult to hear. Sometimes the canons are at strange intervals or inverted or delayed, prolonged, harmonized, you name it. Actually, I'm overstating that. These works as well as the other piano works are intended for performance but I'll have to wait, as I'm still living in a remote part of Canada(temporarily).

I believe my first two preludes Op 125 are above...

Now I've completed a set of 6 preludes and dances for piano. (1-31) ...No. 5 is a challenging piece for a keyboardist (at recommended tempo). I'll clean up the scores soon for posting.

I've just completed my latest work: Winter Valley. It's scored for Flute, Viola, Piano and Vibraphone. It's a rather atmospheric piece for me that is tranquil with only a few exceptions. Check it out!

I'm in the process of composing a set for wind quartet and piano. The first piece is fast and angular. The second is lyrical in nature. The third is a short ABA.

It's been updated a bit. I'm going to leave it at three pieces for now. I have so many works for this combination...On to something different.

I've added a third short piece to the piano suite. This one's Lento and less chromatic than the first two. Now I've added a fourth: the Frantic Greek Dance which is less than a minute.
