NOVEMBER MOON

My first solo piano release since 2019 coming November 11th!

I wrote this song in November of 2021 when I went out to feed my horses before dawn and in the eastern sky was just a sliver of the moon in the shape of a smile. It brought comfort to me during a time when my wife was just diagnosed with a very aggressive cancer.

Received a Grammy® certificates for
🌟 BEST CONTEMPORARY CLASSICAL

Video produced by Ken Veerhecke

I believe we all have a unique song in our hearts and energy field that comes through in our laughter and our tears. I was inspired to compose this piece by my wife Lucie who is currently dealing with a rare sarcoma. Her 'Rhapsody' comes through her in her life force and it does for all of us. It's the harmony of the cosmos that connects us all. We are a song!

COMING TO AMERICA CONCERTO

Coming to America Concerto

Received a Grammy® certificates for
🌟 BEST CLASSICAL INSTRUMENTAL SOLO PERFORMANCE

 

Lisa Swerdlow's, a classical crossover and contemporary instrumental music paying homage to Lisa Swerdlow's Jewish ancestors, who fled the Russian Pogroms. A dynamic and cinematic exploration of a journey of Russian immigrants, told in three movements.

Swerdlow considers herself a storyteller, and last year, she started researching her grandparents' immigration to the United States from Russia (and what is now Ukraine) in the years 1907-1910 due to persecution of the Jewish people.

EP RELEASE - 2021

COMING TO AMERICA CONCERTO  

The first movement - the Russian klezmer-themed "Home of My Ancestors" - tells the tale of life in the Jewish ghettos and villages of late 19th and early 20th century Russia in a global music style. 

The Concerto progresses to the second movement - “The Crossing” - evoking the transition and anticipation of what lies ahead. The ocean’s horizon is infinite, the future is unknown and the past is already far behind them.

In the final movement - “Arrival” - reality dawns. A new life awaits them, in a country where they don’t speak the language, don’t understand its culture, and don’t have any friends or relatives waiting for them. And yet, as their ship passes the Statue of Liberty, they understand her welcoming message and feel grateful for their new homeland. “Arrival" weaves calm melodies of sorrow and builds into an exhilarating message of hope.
