Program Notes

"I was born and raised in New Bedford, Massachusetts, the whaling port of Herman Melville’s Moby Dick. The sea has been, and will be a part of me forever. I was riveted by the mundane aspects of the book – the pictures of the varying ocean moods, the minute descriptions of the ship and whaling gear – sprang to life for me as powerfully as the titanic struggles with the white whale. Since my youth, other stories of Melville, the paintings of Winslow Homer, and the sea imagery in the poetry of Pablo Neruda have opened me in the same way.

The Concerto is in three movements. The first is a double movement with a very serious opening, and a released and joyous conclusion. The second movement is devoted to reflective personal thought, while the third parallels the double structure of the first: an intense personal message followed by a rousing dance music."
