Isabelle Dances by Steven Stucky (Performed by Max Kanowitz)
I hope you enjoy my performance of the first and last movements of this extremely thoughtful and energetic work by composer Steven Stucky. I had the pleasure of preparing this music in preparation for my performance Jury this Spring. I look forward to coming back to this work in the future, and playing the hauntingly beautiful inner movements.
