Program Notes
Petite Suite for violin solo was completed on September 27, 2007. It’s in four movements and includes a large dynamic range. Yet it lays comfortably on the violin. It was originally composed as a companion piece to be performed with my two violin concertos. Yet it is also meant to stand on its own.

Duo Concertante for cello and piano was composed as a highly virtuosic concert piece in four contrasting movements, inspired by Stravinsky’s Violin Concerto. While the first draft was completed in July 2011, the final score was completed in August 2015. This recording is its first performance, since it has yet to be premiered live.

Second Piano Trio was commissioned by the Western Michigan University School of Music for their 100th anniversary and is dedicated to the School. It was completed in San Francisco on June 9, 2012 and was premiered on March 13, 2013 at the University’s Dalton Center Recital Hall, in Kalamazoo, Michigan. The Merling Trio, who is in residence there, was the premiering ensemble. Like Rhapsodic Images, my first piano trio, this composition treats all three instruments equally and doesn’t overtly focus on the piano.

Sun Music for piano solo was completed on January 5, 1987. It was premiered in May of that year by Miles Graber, in San Francisco. It was first recorded by Robin Sutherland, Principal Pianist of the San Francisco Symphony, for New Albion Records, in 1996. It’s a single movement fantasy. While it has minimalistic tendencies, the music constantly changes and has unpredictable flourishes. This is the second recording.
