Symphony #1 "Janus"  25:07

Janus, a Roman deity, was regarded as the guardian of doors, gates, and all beginnings. In ancient Rome Janus was depicted with two faces, on opposite sides of his head, allowing him to simultaneously look both forwards and backwards. This symphony was designed with a similar duality. The structures of all three movements follow a traditional sonata form, weaving together related motifs and building a dynamic tension, yet all three movements also contain modern thematic elements such as extensive syncopation and non-linear rhythmic structures.

Symphony #2 "Phoenix" 28:28

This symphony is titled after the Phoenix, a mythical bird that was said to have lived for 500 years, was burnt to ashes, then arose from the ashes to live again. The first theme introduced in the fourth movement represents the long-lived melodies of the "First Delphic Hymn to Apollo" (ca. 138BC), interpreted from the oldest complete musical manuscript left to the modern world. Incorporation of this ancient Greek melody into a present-day symphony represents a rebirth of this musical legacy and offers a visceral connection
