LATE 2020 NOTE: As of this moment - late November, 2020 - I have no concerts on the horizon, due to the ongoing pandemic. I intend for my next project to be live concert perfomances of The Art of the Fugue as a solo harpsichord work, followed by a recording of the piece. I am workng on figuring out how and when it will seem possible to schedule concerts. If you wish to be kept informed about this, please email me at
