Music

Here are a couple recordings of some fun pieces by composer Daniel Sonenberg that I’ve performed. There’ll be more to come.

Mejdoub (1998)
Dan calls this “an exuberant romp” for accordion, clarinet, drums, electric guitar, and piano (9.5 minutes). I take credit for the title of the piece. It’s an Arabic word, or name, from my childhood years in Cyprus that loosely means fool in the Lebanese usage of the word.

Mikko Luoma, Accordion; Dennis Joseph, Clarinet; Daniel Sonenberg, Drums; Matthew Schickele; Electric Guitar; and Kerstin Costa, Piano, in Brooklyn, New York, 1999.

Six Small Pieces for Clarinet and Piano (1997, c. 12 min.)
A collection of miniatures ranging in feeling from nostalgic, to playful, to kooky, to serene and reflective. Performed here by Dennis Joseph, clarinet, and Kerstin Costa, piano, at Merkin Concert Hall, New York.
