Program Notes

The opening of Concerto No. 3 is devoted to the exposition of a Bach Chorale melody, Als vierzig Tag' nach Ostern (Forty Days After Easter). Some years ago I used this melody as the basis for a movement of another piece, This is the World, for two pianos and two percussionists. The essence of the movement is solo piano with vibraphone. It is an extremely inward and beautiful movement. I gave it the title Do You Know My Name?, the implication being, "Do you truly know who I am; do you see my soul?" I used the end of this movement as the end of this new concerto.

The work is dedicated to the memory and legacy of Robert D. Jorgensen (1945 –2015), Director of Bands Emeritus, The University of Akron, who served the MACBDA with distinction, both as President and as a member of the Commissioning Committee.
