Program Notes

Occasionally, upon completion of a new composition, the name of the piece will still remain a mystery to me. In that situation, what I have found is that if I listen to the work several ties with the intent of finding a title, a word or phrase will eventually revel itself that crystallizes to the intent of the music. This is how the work was named. So, what is the intent of this music? Simply, it is a narrative, a story. There are characters and action. There are multiple moods and conflict, introspectiveness, playfulness, and triumph. There is even a sense that at the end, the story could continue beyond the music. So what is the story exactly? It is whatever the listener chooses it to be.
