Been away for awhile. Here is  The Anger Quintet, for Piano and winds. I composed these movements after a hellish flight (aren't they all).

Here's a revised Piano Variations. It's very harsh, being based on a descending chromatic line (C,B,Db, Bb, A, Ab C, G, Gb E). It's only around 6 minutes :-\...

Oh...and I finished the piano-wind quintet. The movements are in reverse order since lots of people only listen to the first mov on the playlist.

I've completed a few new works. This one is a suite for string quintet. It's got 5 short movements so far, ranging from frantic atonal to diatonic chorales. I find the extra cello helps get a much richer sound at only 25% more... ;)

Here is a part of my 21st Piano Sonata...the 2nd and 3rd movements. Since my 1st movements often require more revision than the others, I often compose it last. That way I know my themes intimately and can more seamlessly express them as I go. Here it is:

The 3rd mov. score is at my blog...

(Starting to catch up a bit.)  I especially enjoy the ease of tone, combined with the flashes of rhythmic upheaval.

Thanks Karl! I've been out of town the past week so it is only now that I see your encouraging words. In the meantime, I need to listen to some other composers here (it seemed the line went dead for awhile) and hear the latest.

Oh, and I've composed a 21st Sonata that I'm still tweeking. It's got lots of rhythmic upheaval ;)  ...

I'm in the process of composing a suite-like chamber symphony which is tentatively called the Dance Symphony  (No. 20)
