Program Note

Antennae
A simple tripartite piece which sounds like a robotic toccata.

The night jaunt
A long nocturnal walk, solitary or perhaps with a friend.

Tunnel
An interstitial movement which leads nowhere.

Trip by train
A virtuosic conversation between pianos, which eventually becomes contemplative and lyrical, finally falling asleep.

Die Spieluhr
A music box which plays disjunct Mahler and Brahms.

Out of shape
Chews on I and V chords for a good long time.

La Malinconia
A verse/chorus structure, with long melodic lines built from repeated-note figures.

How can I live in your world of ideas?
Takes its name from the caption of a cartoon I drew, which depicts a young penguin and his parents in a museum, looking at a painting of a naked woman. This piece starts out as a theme and variations, but is then gradually overtaken by extraneous material from somewhere else entirely.

Flirtation Ave.
An extended process of “coming together”, followed by a rowdy coda.

Pavane (pour un compositeur défunt)
An homage to gospel music and the late composer D. M., or perhaps neither.
