About one month ago (April-20) I started composing a series of small pieces for solo instruments, a project that turned out to be a big one! The response from the musicians involved in the beginning were extremely positive, so I decided to expand from 2-4 pieces to 12-15! The musicians decide whether they want to just record or make a video, in the format they prefer or have equipment to. All miniatures has some similarities in musical material, but also differences relating to characteristics of the instrument itself. I will post the links to each video in this article, and add the new ones as they appear.
