Program Notes

Originally scored for eight cellos, Crush (2019) is experiential music I have cast as a triptych for wind ensemble. Drawing its title from Richard Siken’s book of poetry and inspired by the earthy realness charged within its erotic text, Crush is music of confusion and disillusionment; of sensuality and seduction; of wild abandon and hushed, haunting intimacy.

It is my hope that in some small way this music helps remind us of our potential to grow from heartache and to embrace the rare moments in life when we allow ourselves to experience true vulnerability.

Crush (2019) Triptych for Wind Ensemble was written in fulfillment of the 2019 Atlantic Coast Conference Band Directors Association James E. Croft Grant for Young and Emerging Wind Band Composers.
