Brooklyn – a dream destination of many artists with its chic neighborhoods, and glitzy walk-ups. But then you get off the wrong subway station after dark and you can’t believe the grit and despair. Brooklyn has it all – love it or hate it, take it or leave it, but one thing is certain, Brooklyn has many faces and is bound to surprise you. “Grit and Glitz” is a high energy, show-off piece, venturing out into the territory of catchy pop and rock melodic gestures, stretching their boundaries until it breaks into a cadenza-like section exploring jazz harmonies. The piece marks my first Brooklyn premiere.

This piece is available on the following albums:
