Below are highlights from some of Mark's most popular pieces:
American Prize Honorable Mention awarded to Clarinet Concerto ("Three Psalms") performed by Chicago's Fifth House Ensemble:
Below is the world premiere of my Train & Tower for Orchestra, Tape and Live Train conducted by Lukas Foss, featuring a Long Island Rail Road locomotive I controlled to pass by the festival tent at the the end of the piece for dramatic effect (train not required for future performances). Thanks to Dan Rattiner of Dan's Papers, Eleanor Leonard, Lukas Foss, and Sam Zambuto of the LIRR. The work was ranked #8 all-time by London critic Jeremy Nicholas in Gramophone Magazine (UK) for music evoking railways in the October 2008 Awards edition also found below. The surround sound from the orchestra, tape and approaching train, which I controlled, was other-worldly.
