This is a place for in-depth articles on the arts with an historical accent, although new recordings, bios, documentaries, etc. will be covered. The accent is the craft of the arts: why we create, what is behind creating art, what drives us, audiences and their reactions. It will also be a place to keep the reader informed of my work as a composer/arranger/conductor.
