2015 was again a year filled with travel (to 16 countries) and wonderful music making in a variety of settings. Highlights included performing Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco's Guitar Concerto in D major three times in Texas, performing on the 175th Anniversary Trans-Atlantic crossing on the regal and enchanting Queen Mary 2, a return to Beijing with Zoco Duo as part of the String-139 festival, listening to my solo CD Blackwattle Caprices on a Delta flight and developing and performing the beautifully rich and profound prose of Juan Ramon Jimenez's Platero and I, set to music by Castelnuovo-Tedesco, with my brother Gideon.
