Ordering a Cadenza

Notify Milton Granger at of the date of your performance, length of cadenza desired, and provide a score if needed. After studying the score, Milton Granger will call you to ascertain what strengths you would like to display in your cadenza, what you feel are the limitations of your instrument, and what particular aspects of music and/or your instrument you would rather not have approached in your cadenza. Milton Granger will then finish your cadenza, and send it to you.
