Erik Ochsner, conductor & Brian Wilbur Grundstrom
My Orchestral Journey started the night Maestro Erik Ochsner conducted the world premiere of Celebration! with his newly formed SONOS Chamber Orchestra. Erik has been a champion of my music, also commissioning American Reflections and conducting this recording. Each of my compositions explores a different mood: happiness, contentment, celebration, jubilation, foreboding, contemplative - yet each of them still reflects my voice: including a strong affinity for melody, accessibility, long musical lines and my own distinctive use of tonal harmony. I love beautiful melodies that speak to the listener, with interesting harmony and rhythm to keep them engaging. Next in the journey is an opera for Ernest Hemingway’s For Whom the Bell Tolls.
