Program Notes

This charming and somewhat dark musical offering is a departure from this popular composer's usual epic style. Originally scored for 15 players, this piece is much more intimate than his thickly orchestrated grand works. Stylistically, a minimalistic compositional approach is used, as the melodic content slowly unfolds over shifting ostinato patterns. Certainly a mesmerizing and very different work from this remarkable composer.

Hypnotic Memories was premiered November 2017 by the Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music Chamber Players, conducted by Jon Noworyta.
