Northern Essex Community College English instructor Lenny Cavallaro, of Groveland, will have five volumes of his musical compositions released by two English publishers next year.

Forton Music, which specializes in music for woodwinds, has accepted all of Cavallaro’s compositions for flute and piano, oboe and piano, and English horn and piano. Meanwhile, Broadbent and Dunn, a small family run music publishing company that specializes in classical chamber music and music for solo instruments, will publish both his “Raindrops Fantasia for Violin and Piano” and the “Sonata in D Minor for Violin and Clavier,” which has been performed in Lincoln Center.

Cavallaro has also been active on the literary front. His interview with violinist Alexander Markov headlined September’s sixth anniversary issue of Stay Thirsty Media, an international arts online source for interviews, reviews, and features. The first of his two-part interview with violinist Stephanie Chase appeared in November’s edition.

Cavallaro is presently at work on a concerto for oboe and strings and another work for violin and piano. Meanwhile, Paganini’s Fire, which he edited and revised, was the top selling book about Paganini on Amazon’s list during both June and August.
