MARIEL ROBERTS CELLO
The Library of Congress has commissioned a series of 10 new works from composers across America in The Boccaccio Project, inspired by a similar literary effort in the mid-14th century by Giovanni Boccaccio.
The new work written for me by Ashkan Behzadi will premiere on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube on June 24th at 8pm, and the commission manuscripts will become part of the Library’s music collections.
