    I enjoy your music very much. Thanks for sharing.

    Very best,

  • Thanks for the anecdote about Nadia Boulanger that you posted on my page. It is telling. Astor Piazzolla tells a humorous anecdote of studying with her, in which she looked through all of his music upon his first interview and found only examples of him imitating other famous 20th Century composers. She asked, "Where is Astor Piazzolla's voice?" Eventually, he begrudgingly admitted to playing tango, when she asked him how he had fun with music. Nadia Boulanger asked for a sample, and after hearing him play pronounced verdict, "Now that is Astor Piazzolla!" I suppose the rest is history.
  • Thank you for posting your music and developing DVZ Strings, a breakthrough in sampling technology. Searching the net for a demo of the solo violin, solo viola, and solo cello instruments from DVZ has turned up no results. Could you point me toward such a demo, if it exists? (Am I hearing one in your cello concerto Siddhartha? If so, I'm duly impressed. Brilliant work!)
