Program Notes

Three Dances of Enchantment is a suite of three dances inspired by personal experiences in my life that, through the years, continue to resonate in my memory.

I. The Via Veneto is a musical reminiscence of those “dolce vita” days I spent on one of Rome’s most fashionable streets. Here, as a young film composer, I watched and learned, with great fascination, about the world of Italian film-making.

II. She Walks Through the Fair is a haunting, bittersweet melody that I discovered on my visit to Ireland. Dedicated to Kylie Charra Keene.

III. The Feast of Saint Rocco is a joyous Italian-American celebration dedicated to Saint Rocco held every summer in my hometown of Raritan, New Jersey. It was here, in my father’s arms at the age of five, that I first experienced the vibrant, bold tartness of an Italian band. It was loud and so wonderful!
