Stefan has teamed up with violinist Patrick Galvin to raise money for a new commission for violin and piano. (Contribute to the commission by donating here, all donations are through InterMusic SF and are 100% tax deductible) The work, "American Troubadours", is a multi-movement piece that echoes the long tradition of American folk music and the ‘Americana’ sound, but filtered through the medium of western chamber music. The title, American Troubadour, suggests a re-capturing of the musical vernaculars of the American 'roots' styles of music. The work will present a collage of these ‘American Roots’ styles of music including old Blues, early Jazz, New Orleans Dixieland, and Bluegrass. American Troubadours will show the lineage of these styles. Donations will help fund the composition of the work as well as a series of performances and a professional recording. Your help is greatly appreciated!
