BLUE SKY, the album we just released after 4 year's work:
 
"Dreaming in satin landscapes, in between shadows and blue sky; warriors, ghosts, love and time transcended as light jazz and early pop merge with classical touches and even bossa nova in this collection of original songs written and scored by composer David Avshalomov to lyrics byMeredith Kennedy, who sings them here."

 

Torn Curtain , Suite for Viola and Piano, Dan Avshalomov, viola, Pamela Pyle, Piano
Albany, “Three Generations Avshalomov"

Written for my brother Dan in resonance with Eastern Europe and Russia 1989-90. Suite on original tunes that sound Roumanian, Hungarian, Russian, Czech, songs of empathy and powerless compassion — from a stranger. Heroic writing for the viola, the piano a substantial partner.

Elegy for Strings, Moscow Symphony Orchestra, conducted by the composer

Naxos/Marco Polo, "Aaron Avshalomoff, Orchestral Works, vol. 3"

http://www.naxos.com/catalogue/item.asp?item_code=8.225035

Slow, exquisite, sad, dignified elegy growing out of a soulful melody; unexpected slow blues-y “stomp” middle (Mahler meets Cab Callaway), bitter reprise, “death” chord, “farewell” cadence. 
Dedicated to the memory of Leonard Bernstein.

Longfellow's rumination on snowfall and regret with calm, mysterious music using celesta (or piano) to portray snowflakes and winds.

 My pieces "Crux Fidelis" and "O Vos Omnes" are both included on Amemptos Music's CD "Excelsior", along with another 20 or so short and beautiful anthems and movements - should be of interest to any choir fan or director!
"Requiem" will also be recorded by them in March 2013, for release soon after.

 The Nidaros Cathedral Boys' Choir in Trondheim have just released a new Christmas CD which contains a couple of my pieces. I think the CD itself may only be obtainable direct from Norway, but all the tracks are downloadable from Amazon, and the recording can also be streamed free of charge on Spotify (I don't know if this service extends to the US.)  The album is called 'Julestemning i Nidarosdomen' and my pieces are called 'What Child is this?' (Greensleeves arrangement) and 'See amid the Winter's Snow' (new setting).  Both of these pieces, incidentally, are also available on Youtube, from earlier performances.
 
I see that my setting of 'Noel!' is also downloadable via Amazon.  It's the 3rd track on an earlier CD by the same choir, called 'I wish'.
 
I think the only other 'commercial' recording of my music I am aware of is one by the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Choir and Orchestra of an arrangement I did of 'Rise up, shephed, and follow', with oboe obbligato.  See http://www.liverpoolphil.com/1126/royal-liverpool-philharmonic-orchestra-recordings/spirit-of-christmas.html
 
My overture "The Joy of Christmas", which has an optional choral ending, is being recorded for a BBC broadcast on Christmas Day in Scotland
