Dukas-Nacar: The Sorcerer's Apprentice
On October 31st, 2016 I gave a Halloween concert at Brown's Cogut Center for the Humanities. The preceeding day I also gave a semi-Halloween-themed Children's Concert at the Providence Public Library. Both events featured my arrangement of Paul Dukas' tone poem The Sorcerer's Apprentice. This is the live recording from the Cogut performance.

Tchaikovsky-Nacar: 1812 Overture
In July 2013 I gave a few concerts at the RISD Museum and at Brown's Cogut Center for the Humanities, featuring Liszt's transcription of Beethoven's Fifth Symphony (all movements) and my own transcription of Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture. Following those concerts I made a "studio" recording of the Tchaikovsky, as well as the first movement of the Beethoven (see Other Videos), at the Cogut Center. As of two years later this has turned out to be my most popular video ever.
