Program Notes

Dancefares is a piece about “earworms,” little musical fragments that get stuck in our heads and won’t dislodge themselves no matter what. Most of the musical material in Dancefares is based on the infectious little opening motive which pervades the piece from beginning to end. Throughout the piece, you may hear references to well-known popular songs (well, one in particular).
