Dov Rosenschein
I am a composer, arranger and performer living currently in Highland Park, New Jersey. Among my works are pieces in all genres: symphonies, concerti, chamber music for several combinations, and of course vocal music, which comprises the majority of music I've written over the last few years. The one piece I am most pleased with, however, is an opera which I've completed only some time ago and have yet to have published or performed. Here you will find some pieces of mine which were written over the last ten years, all of which I would like to have performed and recorded. Enjoy.
