For the Fallen on Wanchi Huang’s New Album Drops on 1/5/24

Violinist Wanchi Huang’s new album, Imagining Worlds, will be released in January on the Navona label. I created a new version of For the Fallen, for violin and electronics fashioned from the Peace Bell in Rovereto, IT. Originally commissioned by Rovereto-based trumpeter Ivano Ascari, each of the subsequent versions has involved a reimagining based on the world of the particular instrument. The collaboration with Wanchi Huang was outstanding, and enabled me to recalibrate the timbral elements in a way that serves both the violin and the electronics. This new album also features a wonderful panaoloy of music by Adolphus Hailstork, Meira Warshauer, Jeffrey Mumford and John Corigliano.
