Premiere - "Painting of Japan" for violin and harp

October 26, 2016, 8:14 PM · Last Tuesday, I played my violin (solo) in the hall for the first time at college! It was part of a recital with eight world premieres, my "Painting of Japan" being one of them where I played with my harpist friend. It was so cool getting to work one-on-one with the sound of the harp, both in composing the piece but especially in playing it, as the harp is an instrument I've always wanted to do more with since 2013 or so... Well, ever since I started using it in my orchestral settings, I guess! Anyways, here is a recording of the piece with the score. More information is in the description box. I hope you enjoy.
