Recorded live on tour At Ava's Showroom, San Pedro CA. as part of the "100 Years of Spring" tour celebrating the 100th Anniversary of Igor Stravinsky's classic work "Le Sacre Du Printemps" (The Rite Of Spring), along with the release of my first solo piano CD "Darn That Dream: Solo Piano Vol. 1"

About my solo piano rendition of Igor Stravinsky's classic work:
I've played the 4 hand version this piece many times, but in the early 90's I became obsessed with wanting to perform it by myself. I finally completed and premiered the arrangement in 2001. Over the next few years I performed it multiple times but it wasn't until the advent of the 100th anniversary of the work's premier that my wife Nita Sutton developed a tour concept called "100 Years of Spring", bringing grand pianos into farm markets and other alternative spaces along with more traditional venues. The recordings on this CD represents a performance from that tour.
About the recording: There is a tendency now to perfect classical recordings by means of editing. In the interest of preserving the feel of the performance I have chosen to use only minimal editing of this recording. The astute listener may notice minute errors in the execution of "Le Sacre", but I deemed these inaccuracies acceptable in a live context.
