Music for Shoko - Aubade is dedicated to my dear friend Shoko Suzuki in appreciation of many years of friendship and her devotion to my music. This piece is a transcription of the Aubade movement from Concerto for English Horn and Orchestra originally commissioned by the Oberlin Conservatory of Music in celebration of its 150th anniversary and performed in November 2015 by Robert Walters (E.H.) and The Cleveland Orchestra.
