Just got back from London, where I had recording session with the London Symphony Orchestra conducted by Ben Palmer. My work "To Those We've Lost" was recorded by Nick Wollage at the Abbey Road Studios. It's a part of "The Hope" Album led by Andreas Graf. More info about the project will come soon. It'a real thrill to be part of it. Photo taken by Tom Baumann.
