Program Notes

Triptych is in three parts, fast-slow-fast, and draws upon the composer's familiarity with jazz and popular music styles as well as classical forms. After a slow, dramatic introduction, the first movement transitions into a jazz waltz. The second movement reflects the themes of the first section but in a slower, pop ballad style. The third movement calls upon European three-meter dance forms such as the polonaise and waltz.

Triptych was written at the request of Brynn Albanese, concertmaster of the San Luis Obispo Symphony, and violinist for the popular music group Café Musique. The work bespeaks Brynn’s extensive classical training while showcasing her love and appreciation of gypsy jazz styles.
