A new book of my notated piano music, Rarities, will soon be published along with a recording of the collection released on YouTube.
Rarities contains a number of experimental "concept" pieces, piano transcriptions of choral and organ songs, and my first extended "serious" composition at age 19.
For fans of the 1982 album Fairy Tales on the Norwegian Odin label - a completely remastered and repackaged CD and LP are soon to be released.
Upcoming performances of Requiem in Germany, Lux Aeterna in the US, Mass in the US, Japan, Korea, Germany, Sweden and Norway, Te Deum in Holland, and Stabat Mater in Japan.
A number of performances with choirs are coming up in Norway and the Stockholm area.
