Silver Threads album cover

Nonesuch Records released Silver Threads April 29.


  • Silver Threads was featured on Q2's "Best of 2014: New Music" show at the Greene Space in December. The album has also received some end-of-the-year love from NewMusicBox and WNYC. Next up are performances of the full cycle in Shenandoah and Portland.
  • The Carmina Slovenica Choir performed Stabat Mater Dolorosa as part of their show Toxic Psalms on the Prototype Festival in New York. The Slovenian group had previously performed my work a bunch abroad, and it was a thrill to finally get to hear them live. See the New Yorker preview, and the Times preview and review.

  • Just finished up pieces for eighth blackbird and The Living Earth show--looking forward to hearing those premieres down the road. Currently working on a Sleeping Giant collaboration for the Albany Symphony.
  • More Sleeping Giant news: with funding from New Music USA and the Metropolis Ensemble, monster cellist Ashley Bathgate has commissioned us to compose a work connected to the Bach Cello Suites. More info here.
  • I made a mixtape of "songs" for Q2.
  • Mellissa sang selections from Silver Threads at her recital on Lincoln Center's American Songbook series in March--kudos to Mellissa for the great LC debut!
