Research

My research activities are primarily in prepare solo recitals, chamber music, concertos, and lecture-recitals. Topics covered include new approaches to traditional repertoire from Bach to Prokofieff, preparing new works written in the 20th and 21st centuries, and discovering and preparing nineteenth century American works that are not well known. 90% of the solo recitals I perform include one or more works that I have identified over the past 40 years.
