Violin Concerto premiere with Ben Beilman, Gemma New, and the Kansas City Symphony

“All grown-ups were once children...but only few of them remember it.” -Antoine de Saint-Exupéry in The Little Prince

Growing up, I loved reading The Little Prince. My first violin concerto explores this innocence, and the loss of that innocence. In three movements, instead of sharing a direct narrative I invite the audience to follow their own path as they listen. This concerto was written for my dear friend and wonderful violinist Benjamin Beilman, and the Kansas City Symphony, both great supporters of my work.

This concerto is dedicated to my mother.
