On November 4 and 5 my one-act opera "And did the world with devils swarm, all gaping to devour us" will be premiered by the Bach Concert Series. Youngest son, Jonas, will be playing the French horn, and daughter Sonja, the oboe in the premiere. You can here them below in a performance of my work for oboe and horn, written specifically for them, entitled Sibling Rivalry (1999). It is heard in a performance on March 19, 2006 at St. John's College, Annapolis, Maryland. Jonas is now assistant professor of horn at West Virginia University and Sonja is Senior Director of Operations for the Nashville Symphony. At the upcoming November 4 and 5 concerts Jonas will also be playing my Rondo 2 for horn and marimba and Sonja will be playing the Adagio movement from Johann Sebastian Bach's Concerto for Oboe and Violin.
