Premiered by the Carolina Chamber Symphony in 2002, Amadeus ex machin=
a
has already gone on to international recognition, winning a special=

commendation from the Masterprize Panel in London and serving as
contemporary competition piece for the Vakhtang Jordania Internationa=
l
Conducting Competition in Kharkov, Ukraine. It has also been performe=
d
by the Louisville Orchestra, Russia's St. Petersburg Chamber
Philharmonic, the Lake Superior Chamber Orchestra and the Indianapoli=
s
Chamber Orchestra. The composer has described the work as 'a whimsi=
cal
re-imagining of Mozart's 40th symphony from the perspective of a=

sophisticated - but somewhat disoriented - machine.' Read his c=

Hailed by the Louisville Courier-Journal for his 'compelling, innat=
