"It is a search; the quest for surviving while pondering the big questions of life and the struggle for finding our role in this brief instant of time called our life span."

Keep the music going...
We know that most people no longer pay for music. This is a problem. Even more so for musicians of jazz, classical and instrumental music (just like me!) that lack a large commercial demand for their music. A lot of us don't lack the merits, but we do lack the financial means to give you more of what you like.

And yet, here you are now, reading this message, listening to the music. You are part of a very select group of people, a minority (although a big one in numbers) that understands and appreciates the difficulty and value in this work. If only half of you donated a small amount consistently, we wouldn't need to ask for your support, and we would have 3 or 4 times more music and content for you.

Bringing you (ad-free) the music and content of this website takes thousands of hours, practice, technical knowledge, love and hard work. If you find joy or any kind of value here, please become a Supporting Member with a recurring monthly donation of your choosing:

It's happening! All 3 movements have been produced, you can see the videos of each one of them above, and it's going to be available everywhere where music is sold.

The third movement "Scherzo Galoppo, A New Dream" closes the piece with a lighter and energetic tone, in direct contrast with the darker ambients of the prior two movements. A new dream is alive, and the music reflects it. We hope you will like it!

Stay tuned though! we will uplaod YouTube videos of interviews and behind the scenes soon.

For now, this is the end of our main journey with our violin concerto. I hope you can find aesthetic value in it, and you will support us on the road and sharing this music with everyone you know.

Check out some samples of the first movement of my Violin Concerto here:

->LISTEN TO SAMPLES OF FIRST MOVEMENT (Andante - Moderato) HERE.

We should have the recording of the second movement also some time soon, and we plan on releasing some samples of it for you to listen to right after it's done.

The plan is to release the first two movements at the same time, once we finish producing a music video and video commentary about the project featuring Danut. What do you think? Please let us know what you think in the comments below.

I finished writing the second movement of the concerto about a month ago. Danut is recording it probably as I type this, despite a very busy classical music season here in South Florida. I can't wait to hear how it is going to sound.

This movement is the slow one. It's shorter then the first, about 11 minutes compared to the 14 of the first one, and it introduces new themes and developments, while borrowing subtlety - I hope - some from the first. It has a slightly thinner texture in the orchestra (less instruments) overall, although it features the piano perhaps a bit more prominently. I plan on posting some short samples soon for all of you to listen to.

I also wrote the main idea for the third and final movement. A scherzo, the fast and short one that wraps it all up. The idea was to let you all listen to the first two movements first, before producing the third one, to see if the whole thing was well received or not. That's still the plan, so I plan on reading your comments on it.

The production of the first movement (Andante Moderato) of my Violin Concerto is nearly finished. My friend, the talented Danut Muresan returned to play the violin for this work. I think he did an amazing job. I am beyond excited about it. I must say I am absolutely delighted and inspired with the personal touches his performance brought to the original piece so far.

I am also finishing up writing the second movement as well, and expect to produce its recording soon. If I had to describe the concerto and what drives it from a subjective and emotional stand point, I would say it is a search; the quest for surviving while pondering the big questions of life and the struggle for finding our role in this brief instant of time called our life span.

Music-wise, you will find my inescapable need to have very defined themes throughout the score. This time, you see much more development than in anything else I have ever written, or at least that is what I tried to do.

Personally, it moves me very much. I hope it moves you too, even if only in the tiniest way. It's certainly not the easiest concerto to play, but certainly not the hardest. I tried to focus on showcasing the abilities of the performer, but not at the expense of the composition, and keeping the music honest.
