Program Notes

I write on music from the 17th century to the present day for organizations including the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra, the Philadelphia Orchestra, Tippet Rise Art Center, and Bard Music West. My notes have also been used by ensembles and concert series in the United States, Canada, and United Kingdom.

The full text of my notes are collected here, but may not be reprinted without permission.
