AMY COLLINS

"Todd Goodman’s lush and expressive compositions for auxiliary instruments of the orchestra are unprecedented. I am beyond thrilled to have the chance to commission him for his first-ever double concerto: SEEING DOUBLE for alto flute and english horn."

 

 

-Amy Collins, principle oboe Opera Tampa and The Venice Symphony

"For those who love a great melody, Todd Goodman’s works never disappoint! His concerti strike the perfect balance between soloists and ensembles. I’m very excited to help SEEING DOUBLE for Alto Flute and English Horn become a reality, bringing these two beautiful instruments together, front and center, in collaborative settings with piano, orchestra, or wind ensemble."

-Francesca Arnone, Palm Beach Opera

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT GOODMAN'S MUSIC

Todd Goodman has championed the often neglected harmony and color instruments of the orchestra in a way that no other composer has. His BASS CLARINET CONCERTO is a true masterpiece that is not only virtuosic but it is accessible to the average listener.

Todd Goodman’s compositions are vivid, striking, and playgrounds for interpretation. I love that his music is meaningful while being fun to perform. His writing is memorable, and the way that he composes for tuba is particularly stylish.

Goodman's first TUBA CONCERTO is an astonishing work that showcases the many abilities of the modern day solo tubist. This Concerto is packed full of the essential elements needed for a work of this stature to stand the test of time.

Working with Todd Goodman has been truly rewarding. My trio, Eastern Standard, asked Todd to write a piece for us. The piece he produced, WANDERLUST is one of the most well-crafted works in our repertoire. His music is tuneful and unique. It is both profound and accessible, and is as enjoyable for the audience to hear as it is for the performer to play.

Todd Goodman's TUBA CONCERTO NO. 2 "This Too Shall Pass" is an exciting, hyper-expressive and virtuosic new concerto is a delight for both performers and audiences. The orchestration ranges from lush romanticism to delicate chamber music, and the solo part is playful, singing, and tremendously exciting.

Todd Goodman's TUBA CONCERTO NO. 2 "This Too Shall Pass" is an exceptional new work in the concerto repertoire. It's a wonderfully-composed virtuosic work with brilliant technical passages for both the soloist and the orchestra coupled with gorgeous lyrical writing. The second movement, my favorite of the work, is hauntingly beautiful.

Todd Goodman's PICCOLO CONCERTO is a vibrant work with lush orchestration and expressive writing that highlights the piccolo's strengths. Soaring lines that span the instrument's entire range are juxtaposed with sensitive lyricism throughout the composition's three movements. The piece is full of energy and demonstrates the piccolo's incredible agility. It's a rewarding challenge to learn and an absolute blast to perform!

Goodman's THE PRECIPICE captures the sensation of standing on the edge, then soaring through the air. A dynamic piece with tone clusters that sound like reflecting light and brass passages that represent looming mountains. It's always an ensemble and audience favorite!
