"Playing for Pavel" cover
Playing for Pavel

Upon his passing, Jim had the idea to make a recorded tribute to his beloved teacher, Pavel Melamed. It allowed him to keep Pavel's spirit and energy within him while preparing for the recording. Each piece was selected because Jim studied it with Pavel, or the spirit of the music evoked Pavel's memory.
