Program Notes

Meridian comes very much out of the composer's love for ostinato, or groove-based, music. Other diverse influences include the world music-infused jazz of Keith Jarrett and Jan Garbarek, as well as the symphonies of Shostakovich. This exciting and creative work is written with a consistent rhythmic drive throughout, and features a prominent role for piano.
