Pi Day 2016 and Albert Einstein's birthday!
A Piece of Pi - a piece for solo violin or viola - a cello version is now available.
A Piece of Pi was written for solo violin to celebrate Pi Day in 2008 to honor math teachers at Trinity School in New York City. Each member of that department was presented with a recording of the piece and an autographed copy of the sheet music.
The piece has been presented at the school several times, most recently at a Math Symposium. It has also appeared on a Doctoral recital at Peabody Conservatory. It has been part of a Pi Day celebration in Poland and in other places. Separate from Pi Day, I am pleased that it has received performances at several other venues in New York over the past few years and I have had many requests for the sheet music both nationally and internationally. The music has been recently been published by Ovation Press - check under my name, Steven Rochen, if you want a copy of the music.
