Bartok String Quartet No. 5, Mvmt. 1
One of my favorite string quartets ever composed. Performed with the Aurelius Quartet, my dear friends Nathan Lowry, Mary Grace Johnson, and Daniel Moore.
Bach Cello Suite No. 6, Prelude
The opening movement of my favorite of the six suites. From my masters graduation recital at Indiana University.
Dvorak Cello Concerto, Mvmt. 1
Widely considered to be the greatest cello concerto ever written, this piece has been a constant companion of mine for the past five years, through performances and auditions. From my masters graduation recital at Indiana University. Yerim Rhee on piano.
Brahms Cello Sonata No. 2 in F Major, Mvmt. 2
From Aspen Music Festival 2019. A gorgeous, lyrical slow movement from Brahms' second cello sonata. Corey Silberstein on piano.
Beethoven Cello Sonata No. 4 in C Major
From my masters graduation recital at Indiana University. A short but fiery work which, in classic late-Beethoven fashion, goes from darkness to triumphant light. With the stellar Yerim Rhee on piano.
Shostakovich Cello Concerto No.1, Mvmt. 1
My concerto competition winning performance with the Vanderbilt Symphony. A rare honor to play solo with a full orchestra.
Bach Cello Suite No. 3, Courante
A casual iPhone recording during a practice session. Stay until the end for my expert appraisal of the work 😛
