LATEST RELEASE

The seven spiritual and physical chakra’s are interpreted.
Each begins with a peddle tone associated with it from its eastern tradition. Descending from space or ascending from the Earth each chakra grows from the single tone into a rich composition, DiDonato’s interpretation of each.
Chakra Sonata was a commissioned piece by Sonam and the “Jewels of Buddha” Tibetan crafts shop in NYC. 
We greatly appreciate their support.

VONNEGUT

A tribute to the great American writer Kurt Vonnegut.

The piece flows like a collection of Vonnegut short stories. From small town college graduation to colonies in outer space, from lovers in a meadow to brothers on a battlefield. Emotions weave as”Vonnegut” relies heavily on jazz as well classical styles.

The  Impressionists

A tribute to the painters of the impressionist movement in 1870’s Paris France. “Pissarro, Monet, Degas, Renoir, Manet, Cezzane and Morisot were sharing and working together. They formed a group much like a musical ensemble. “The belief in each other while the world at first mocked them is awe inspiring” . This piece attempts to act as a tone poem for the groups trials and tribulations from 1860 to 1873.
