    I play all the instruments on these performances of Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No.4 and Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 23. I chose to use a sampling keyboard using digital samples of real orchestral instruments; all the sounds are meant to imitate the original. Since I don't play the cello or flute it was a wonderful opportunity to experience and explore the orchestral score and "play" these instruments. The results are surprisingly realistic.

    Of the months it took to perform both concertos it was one of the most difficult musical challenges of my life and the most fun I've ever had.
