Hi everyone,

Two weeks after the premiere of Concert Etudes I, the piece is now on youtube. Please note that movements I, III, and VI, were performed due to the timing of the recital. I hope to have this piece performed in it entirety very soon.

For now, enjoy!!

This Tuesday on November 1st is the first Premieres Concert of the 2011-2012 school year! Originally, the first Premieres Concert would have been October 18th, but due to a lack of pieces, the concert was cancelled.

I am very excited for this premieres concert in particular, because this is the first time that my music is in a concert along with six graduate colleagues of mine! In addition, this premieres concert has a variety of chamber ensembles: from a piano solo to a piece that requires 5-10 TVs and DVD players!! I will be premiering Concert Etudes I which I started to write earlier in February. With Sangmi Lim playing my music for the THIRD time (personal record!!), I know that this piece will go well. (side note: I asked Sangmi yesterday to play this piece, because the pianist before had a fever, and still does.)

Unfortunately, since all of the students who operated on the webcast of many premieres concert are not at Michigan State any more, there is not a webcast for this concert (if it does, I’ll let you know), so what I’ll do is that once the CD is complete, I’ll post the piece on Youtube and on this site. For those that live in the Mid-Michigan area, I hope you can attend this concert; it is a concert that you will NOT want to miss! Hart Recital Hall, East Lansing, MI. Michigan State University.

As some of you may have known, I had a recital on Friday night and I must say, I was very satisfied with the performances that were presented; especially the Concerto for Saxophone!

Unfortunately, I was not able to setup the webcam properly, because the laptop I used was not properly registered to MSU’s network. So what I was able to do was to have the second half of my recital video recorded. Don’t worry. I have the whole recital recorded, but I don’t have the CD with me at the moment.

So for now, check out the Concerto for Saxophone (all three movements), and Fantonium on youtube

Enjoy!

Concerto for Saxophone: Trial and Error

Concerto for Saxophone: Research; Realization

Fantonium

Hello everyone.

In four days, (haha, the title of my composition for string quartet) I will have my senior capstone composition recital on April 15th, 8:00pm at the MSU Hart Recital Hall in the Music Building. This recital will feature a world premiere of the Concerto for Saxophone performed by my older brother Eddie Goodman and by pianist Sangmi Lim. The recital will also feature In the Forest (for woodwind quintet), The Sacred Way (for brass quintet), Four Days (for string quartet), and Fantonium (for euphonium and piano).

The title of this post is not a joke! I have decided to make a live webcast of the recital! This is great for those who will not be able to attend the recital but would love to check it out. The webcast will be on this link:

I will remind you again sometime soon. With that, have a great day!
