Gratitudes:
In memory of Hans Wurman, William Russo, and Richard Halajian. Special thanks to Patty, Elizabeth and Katie Halajian for letting us have their dad for so many years. Jill and Nell's attire for photos provided by Saks Fifth Avenue.
Thank you Henry, Nena, and Zari.

Opus 17 was made possible by a grant from the Meet The Composer/Reader's Digest Commissioning Program, in part-nership with The National Endowment For The Arts and The Lila Wallace-Reader's Digest Fund.

Chamber Blues is dedicated to Seiji Ozawa and his family, who offered me this art form, and made all this possible. I owe them a great deal. Chamber Blues is also dedicated to the memory of my dear friend William Russo whose advice and support have been a great help to me over the years. And of course Chamber Blues is dedicated to all the great blues masters like Howlin' Wolf, Muddy Waters, Willie Dixon and Sam Lay who have always been an inspiration and a support.
