Last week a bunch of us crowded into a couple of cars and headed up to Yonkers, where Ryan Streber maintains the great Oktaven Audio. In addition to recording Rob Honstein’s Beginnings (listen up!), Dave and I (both with pathetically leaking noses) recorded a nice clean version of Retro Music, my four-hands piece from last year. The whole thing comes together in a way that I don’t think the previous live recording quite captured; it makes sense to me, of all people, at long last. Here you go:
recorded at Oktaven Studios, Yonkers, NY, September 2012
performers David Kaplan & Timo Andres, piano four-hands
I am sitting in my unseasonably warm apartment awaiting the arrival of a new composition student. Yes, wonder of wonders, I have a student! Does this mean I have to start following my own advice?
