Thank you!

A few months ago, I ventured into the previously unknown-to-me world of crowd-funding, at least unknown on a personal level; I had contributed to some projects before, but I had not set up my own funding campaign. I was unsure what to expect, but the response was not only incredibly positive, but by reaching out to friends whom I hadn't seen in a while but whom I thought may be interested in my project, I felt that I was able to re-connect with many people in a meaningful way. I hope that all who have contributed to this recording understand how important you are to not just this particular recording, but to the Arts, friendships and social relationships, and -while skirting a bit close to being hyperbolic- to humanity in general. Why are we drawn to arts/entertainment? Through the arts, humans are all connected in ways that cannot be explained with words. The Arts allow us to step out of our personal worlds and minds and share experiences with others regardless of any other considerations.

I am incredibly lucky to be able to devote my life to the Arts and I thank you for helping me to create beautiful music and connect people. Thank you for putting your trust and faith in Beethoven ReImagined. I hope you enjoy the music, and recognize that you have made it possible to produce this record and share these incredible pieces with people around the globe.

Below is an alphabetical list of the incredible people who have contributed to fund Beethoven ReImagined as of April 28, 2018. (Note - this list does not include the extraordinary and generous individuals who have reached out to me privately, or who have listed their Indiegogo donations anonymously).
