WMMN-TV Presents: Recital Video: With a Little Help From My Friend

Tweet this!

One of the drawbacks of being a pianist is that you can spend an awful lot of time playing alone, unlike other instrumentalists who, almost by definition, play in orchestras, bands, or chamber ensembles most of the time. I didn’t discover chamber music until I got to college, and it made me want to just… sing!

Fortunately, there are plenty of opportunities for musical collaboration if you put yourself in the right place at the right time!

I especially love accompanying singers. This video is the first of two songs on my recital, where I was joined by the wonderful singer, and my good friend, Peter Terry. The song is a setting of a text from the Song of Solomon (adapted by yours truly). As I mention in the video, it was performed at McDoc’s and my wedding ceremony (but not by me!). Enjoy!

More to come… 🙂

  1. Thanks for the fine performance. BTW, what kind of piano are you playing?

    • Thank you! 🙂

      It’s a Steinway from, if I remember correctly, 1886! It’s a fascinating instrument, with a very sensitive action.
