Our most recent project, the Circus Princess Fantasy, is a showpiece composed on the themes of Emmerich Kálmán's 1926 operetta, Die Zirkusprinzessin. The plot follows the romance between the title character and the mysterious Mr. X who is a fearless acrobat, a virtuoso violinist, and an incognito aristocrat, all in one; so the music has everything: Viennese waltzes, Hungarian folk dances, circus sequences, and sweeping, Puccini-esque love themes.
A suite of 6 short pieces, based on and inspired by Ukrainian folk song and dance styles. Originally written for cello and piano, commissioned by Evelyne Luest in spring 2022.
Three sets of violin and piano miniatures composed between 2020 and 2022
