In conjunction with the Composers Now Festival.

The Composers Now Festival celebrates living composers, the diversity of their voices and the significance of their musical contributions to our society. During the month of February, the Festival brings together dozens of performances presented by venues, ensembles, orchestras, opera companies, dance companies and many other innovative events throughout New York City. Experience the sounds and get to know the creators behind the music. From jazz to indie, from classical to electronic and beyond, join us on a sonic journey through the landscape of the arts of our time. Composers will be in attendance at all events and will be interacting with audiences. Composers Now is a project partner of The Fund for the City of New York. We gratefully acknowledge the support of the ASCAP Foundation, the BMI Foundation, the Cheswatyr Foundation and the Ann and Gordon Getty Foundation.

To all my friends and fans:  I am going to be taking an indefinite leave-of-absence from performing to focus on composing, recording, editing my scores for those who may be interested in performing the pieces now or in the future, and archiving my materials which will be included in the NYU Library/Fales Collection;  oh, and to take some time to "smell the roses" with my lovely wife, Jan.

I may pop-up now-and-then to do something, as the spirit moves, but I no longer intend to focus on a career as a performer.

Thanks for all your support!

Best wishes,

Guy

Bandcamp   digital releases of Altered Landscapes; Citrus, My love; and The Landscape Listens.

Altered Landscapes, 1995, is my most ambitious solo accordion composition, commissioned by David Dorfman Dance.  Awarded a BESSIE for best dance/music score.  In three parts, with the third part incorporating Kustino Oro, a traditional tune from the former Yugoslavia.

Citrus, My Love, 1991, was commissioned by Stuart Pimsler Dance Theatre, and is for accordion, violin/viola, cello, and doublebass.

The Landscapes Listens, for violin and accordion, was commissioned by Laurie McCants for her one-person show, Industrious Angels, inspired, in part, by the life and work of American poet, Emily Dickinson.

Sheet music for the oldest composition in my catalogue, "Variations on an Aeolian Theme," is now available. You can find a sample on the "Sheet Music for Guy's tunes" page of this web site.

The piece uses both stradella and free bass, and illustrates that my love of theme-and-variations form was there right from the get-go.

Music for Mobiles available on Bandcamp.

A series of six miniature pieces, commissioned by artist Keith LoBue for the video "Poetry in Motion," featuring Keith beautiful mobiles.
