Program Notes

Concertino for Piano and Wind Ensemble was commissioned by the Northeastern State University Wind Ensemble, Norman A. Wika, conductor and was written during August and September 2015. The piece is a slightly revised arrangement of my Concerto for Solo Piano and Solo Organ that I wrote in 2008 where the organ part is now replaced by the wind ensemble. It features two main melodies, the first a dark and sinister theme in D minor emphasizing dissonance and chromaticism, and the second a happy and playful tune in pure C major. These seemingly incompatible themes are each presented separately but in the end reach a kind of synthesis after an improvised cadenza by the piano soloist.
