Program Notes

In Pieces was written during a time of deep unrest. My mind was batting around, my life adrift. I was writing music that seemed to me simultaneously to be the most earnest possible expression of raw emotion while at the same a cuttingly ironic jab at the world. Angry, humorous, sad, tender. All of it.

This piece is a playground for different stylistic idioms, in varying degrees of straightforward representation. It was both fun and painful to write.

This piece is dedicated to a friend who has been with me for twelve years, day and night, rain or shine—the most solid rock I've ever known: my dog, Wally, who always puts me back together again whenever I fall to pieces.

I am deeply grateful to all the extraordinary ensembles forming the consortium which commissioned this work. I am so happy to have had the chance to write such an ambitious and large-scale piece for wind ensemble.
