Program Notes

I awoke feeling excited on my birthday -- not to celebrate another year older, but for the impeding birth of my first child. She would be here in a couple of weeks, and I began thinking about how much richer my life was about to be, despite the challenges that come with a newborn. One obvious obstacle is the lack of sleep that most new parents endure, so I knew that I wanted this lullaby to incorporate the sounds of a jewelry box (depicted by the piano and metallic percussion).

When it came to inspiration for a title, the words of Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Tom Lichtenheld’s book I Wish You More worked perfectly. I found these words to be just as meaningful for me as they are for a child. And More is a lullaby and a song of hope for my daughter. My hope is that it will put us back to sleep and that our happiest dreams will come true.

- Program Note by composer

This wonderful opportunity for expressive playing begins with percussion in a music-box lullaby style. Emotional effect is achieved through plenty of dynamic contrast and warm colors attained through excellent instrumentation.
