Program Notes

Lullaby for Noah was composed for Noah Donald Koffman-Adsit and commissioned by Glen Adsit and the Hartt School Wind Ensemble. When Glen asked me to compose a lullaby for his son Noah I was completely taken with the idea. I wanted to write a piece that was simple and eloquent. As I composed this piece, I thought of that wonderful main theme of Elmer Bernstein’s score for the film To Kill a Mockingbird -- how provocative and song-like -- beautifully shaped and filled with a quiet melancholy. There is also a touch of melancholy in this lullaby and perhaps a longing for the innocence that once was our basic nature.

“When I approach a child, he inspires in me two sentiments: tenderness for what he is, and respect for what he may become.”

- Louis Pasteur
