The old site with catalogues for each instrument

I have been composing since 1969, concentrating on lyrical tonal music and experimenting in various modes (particularly the Dorian and Octatonic).
Some of my work is aimed at good amateur musicians (both instrumental and vocal) but other pieces are quite virtuoso, especially solo works for flute, saxophone and violin which have been written for specific professional musicians.
I have also attempted to fill specific "gaps" in the market, in particular songs for alto (or baritone) voice and classical guitar: back in 1969, I asked my local music shop if they had such works.
When they said that they didn't, I immediately began to remedy the situation, and continue to do so, as you can see from my catalogue!

Dawn in the Room

Dawn in the Room This music was inspired initially by my father's translation of Supervielle's L'Aube dans la Chambre
My mother created another poem on the basis of the music, a song of a lover's consolation, and this has become the source of many instrumental and vocal versions.
The CD can be found at:
CDBaby
and
Bandcamp
and shortly on Amazon, itunes, Spotify, Deezer etc

The high resolution live videos of the recent performances in Budapest can be found at
