Fiddlers' Fugue 

ShilakowskyArts presents:
New Compositions
Written by Harris Shilakowsky, former concertmaster of Charleston, New Orleans, Grand Rapids, and Omaha Symphony Orchestras, and guest leader of the London Symphony Orchestra.

Fiddlers' Fugue, completed for a composition competition, this piece was recorded in a studio on the South Shore of Boston, then digitally remastered along with the Messaien and Ysaye pieces which can be heard on the Recital tape available at Recordings.

(1979-81). The theme is based on that of the Duettino for two violins by Shilakowsky, written more than twenty years before this piece was conceived. Dreamy, slightly dissonant. Not a strict fugue, bluesy modality clashes with modernity.

Elegy For Sharon

composer; Harris

written in memory of a serious professional violinist and teacher of the violin


friend and supporter of fine music.

The music contains gentle references to other composers and Jewish influences.

I intended it to be solemn yet not overly sad, but rather to reflect on the beauty and joy that music brings to our lives and that Sharon brought to so many. Mp3 $2.39
