Chamber Music

Chamber music, as the name suggests, is intimate. The interaction of a small number of solo voices is conversational - and it is that aspect that has always especially appealed to me. The flow of independent but interacting voices, sometimes echoing, sometimes contrasting, is so essentially human. The music on this page is for various combinations of instruments, but please go to the "music for strings alone" page for my string quartets.
