Orchard

Releasing on Neuma records January 14, 2022.

What a pleasure to participate in this wonderful consortium! Tyler Kline’s Orchard is a marvelous set of 50 short piano pieces. Perfect for students and professionals alike, these are wonderful works for introducing students to contemporary sonorities.

I commissioned 5 fruits specific to my home state of Minnesota: Blackberry, Cloudberry, Elderberry, Juniper, and Sand Cherry. I play these plus Kiwi on the recording. Thanks to “The Outside” on WYSO 91.3 (Yellow Springs, Ohio) for featuring Kiwi on November 28, 2021.
