Today’s new Youtube video is my set of Moving Études from 2017. The three études are pianistic studies not on specific technical challenges, but on the idea of tempo, rhythm, and rubato as expressive tools.
I Facetimed with The New York Times’s Joshua Barone to talk about my recent YouTube foray and the current state of non-concertizing.
Some hard evidence that last month’s Proof show at Cincinnati Symphony really, truly happened. Grateful for the contributions of John Heginbotham & dancers, Inbal Segev, André de Ridder, John Beale and the Cincinnati Sacred Harp Singers.

I love eBay—the great thrift store in the sky—and have been pretty active on the site as both a buyer and seller since I was in grad school. Recently David Coggins, one of my favorite writers on “men’s issues” such as what clothes to wear, asked me to write about my eBay watch list for his new website, The Contender. For those unfamiliar, the watch list is a kind of purgatory for auctions you’ve got your eye on but either can’t rationalize or can’t afford. It’s a real window to the soul, in other words.
