Today I present my original composition, THE FIRES OF KAMCHATKA.  I completed this piece in 2016 and scored it for balalaika.  Below is a screenshot of the entire autograph score:

This, my first composition for the balalaika, is a meditation on one of my favorite places on Earth—the Kamchatka Peninsula.  Although my feet have never trod the wilds of that wondrous place, my mind’s eye has carried me aloft on wings of blissful imagination!  My title is an allusion to the volcanism of Kamchatka; one of the most brilliant flames in the Pacific Ring of Fire.
