Recently, a lot of my composing energies have been directed at an opera in 12 scenes, 'Cliff House,' for which I have written the libretto and am working on the music. It is written for around eight singers and chamber ensemble (cor anglais, trombone, piano, and violin). A famous operatic soprano has died and has entered the underworld in the form of her grandmother's house, built on a cliff overlooking the ocean. The singer replays parts of her life as she moves through the house, encountering demons and allegorical figures. The opera ends as she goes out onto the beach and faces a kind of final reckoning.
Well, I finished the violin concerto in 2019 and wrote a symphony, a set of 15 solo violin pieces, choral works, chamber music, a Sinfonietta, art songs, a chamber opera ('The Doorkeeper', based on Kafka), two string quartets, handbell music, organ music, a ballet, piano music, etc.
