His UK stay will also include lecturing at Kings College London and at the Royal Academy of Music, as well as hearing a performance of his "Jefferson Cadenza" for solo violin. The work was written for Peter Sheppard Skaerved, and was premiered by him in September 2011 at the National Portrait Gallery (London). The trip will also include recording sessions with the Kreutzer Quartet in preparation for a new CD on the (Swiss) Guild label. One of the pieces for the new disk will be a revised version of his 2002 "Water Music" for strings and electronic sounds. In April, his music is being performed on the Portland (Maine) Conservatory/Unitarian Church series, and the composer will travel to New York for the premiere of a new piano piece (to be performed by Hui Wu) at the Juilliard School.
