Three Squares in the Shape of A. Pärt

Here is audio of Richard Valitutto performing my Three Squares in the Shape of A. Pärt at the Hammer Museum! Three Squares in the Shape of A. Pärt is for solo toy piano. It was presented at Richard’s Inner Child, Old Soul concert on Sept. 15, 2012 as part of Wild Up’s residency at the Museum.
