David Schiff: Composer, Author, Teacher

A great summer at Chamber Music Northwest with splendid performances of Five Pieces and a Ghost by David Shifrin and the Jasper String Quartet and Nonet no. 2 by the Akropolis Reed Quintet and the Dover String Quartet--and the release of a 2 CD album of recorded festival premieres of my music, including Nonet no. 1 and Borscht Belt Follies.
