for Violin, Violoncello and Dancers
(Duration: ca. 8 minutes)

Abstract No. 1 was commissioned by Rosemary Doolas and Chicago Dance Medium. The collaboration, with choreography by Rosemary Doolas, received its premiere at the Northwestern University February Dance Festival, and was followed by numerous performances in the Chicago area including The Chicago Dance Center, The Chicago Cultural Center, and jury selected for the grand opening of the new performance space of the Harold Washington Memorial Library. Upon demand, a concert version of this music has been arranged by the composer (no dancers). This rendition has also received wide-spread acclaim through international performances. This recording features Liz Silver, violin and Erica Pickhardt, violoncello; both members of Albany (NY) Symphony.
