Fantasy for English Horn and Piano
Commissioned by Thomas Stacey, English horn, NY Philharmonic.

on a trombone/piano arrangement, written for Joseph Alessi (principal trombone,

seminar in Carmel Valley earlier this month. I really like it and it was a big hit there.
Thanks again for this fabulous arrangement." -- Thomas Stacey
