Mr. Brickman has recorded several works of contemporary American chamber music for the Milken Foundation, released on the Naxos Label. He is a featured soloist on the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra’s 75th Anniversary CD, performing an arrangement of Vernon Duke’s jazz standard Autumn in New York written for him by Jeff Tyzik. Mr. Brickman is himself a skilled arranger; he recently performed Elgar’s Suite, his own orchestration of four short works originally for violin and piano.
