"Telling Tales" had its origins decades ago, when I was working on a series of children's' projects. The individual pieces were coalesced into a suite for flute and harpsichord. Though the details are only fragments of memory at this point, I do recall that the melodies were drawn from several sources including a record project, commercials, and if I am not mistaken a song for a lovely young, yet mysterious woman. These days I often revisit early works, reworking the material to see how they might sound if they were written more recently.  So "Telling Tales" for Violin and Harpsichord is the 2013ish take on music from the 1970s. 

This page features a range of new concert music by Stuart Diamond -- from chamber music to orchestral.

Many of the performers are legendary, including Karen Bentley Pollick, Kronos, Max Pollikoff, Simca Heled, et al.

Check back as more performances are added to the list on a regular basis.


Baroque Fantasy by Stuart Diamond for solo violin is a three movement work that looks back at the Baroque solo violin pieces through a contemporary prism. It is played by Karen Bentley Pollick. The work was premiered in 1974 and played by legendary violinist Max Pollikoff.

Simca Heled and Jonathan Zak perfrom the first two movements of The Sonata for Cello and Piano
