Program Notes

Glaze is the middle piece in a large scale triptych of works which deal with visual concepts; specifically light, reflections, glazes and surfaces. The first work is Tinted for piano trio, and the last work in the triptych is Glisten, also for piano trio.

The first four movements of Glaze are monothematic etudes, each lasting precisely the same duration despite being in different meters and tempi. The final movement takes one single line from each of the previous movements and "glazes" them together in schizophrenic harmony, with the drums playing in a different tempo and meter from the rest of the ensemble.

Glaze was written for the Atlantic Brass Quintet and percussionist Robert Schulz, who recorded the work for a CD on Albany Records (see below).
