My most profound musical memories are of playing in large ensembles and I was lucky to have been able to sing Vivaldi’s Gloria in high school. Privileged to have played through a Beethoven’s third Symphony later that same year. Reflecting upon this, the fact that all of my previous recording projects have included various musical groupings is not surprising. They might be seen as attempts to recreate those profound musical experiences that happen in an ensemble setting.
