Program Notes

In a way, ...Go is a tribute to many composers whom I hold in high regard. I didn’t set out to do this, but the conglomeration of ideas I was hearing in my head was a wonderful mix of influences. Ravel, Hindemith and Rodrigo in the opening ... Holst and Vaughan Williams in the middle.

Please don’t get me wrong! This composition is “all me,” written in my style. I wrote every theme and each note to the best needs of the piece. It’s that some composers, through musical legacy, can leave you with seeds of creativity. I just planted them all at once.
