These large ensemble pieces are certainly my best work. The bassoon concerto is my personal favorite, I love playing my saxophone concerto, and Stifled Mystery was my master’s thesis. I love writing for large groups and I hope to write many more pieces for orchestra and band in the future. I have gone through great pains to ensure that these large ensemble compositions are error free and ready for performance. All of them have been approved by professionals other than myself, most have been read by groups, and many have been performed.
