Program Notes

It only takes a spark to start something big. Set around a six-note motif, Spark! represents the chain of events that can happen as an idea is brought to life from a singular seed. The piece evolves from this idea and eventually takes on a life of its own, growing organically as the piece proceeds to its full-blown, exciting conclusion.

- Program Note from publisher


For my wife Arrianne. Who continues to be the spark of inspiration in my life.
