THE PROGRAM NOTE

 

REMEMBRANCE is a pensive eulogy and tribute. We grieve, and reluctantly accept, the passing of those who have profoundly touched our hearts. We cannot clutch the elusive, or possess the scent of memory that defies capture. The only thoughts about this music that matter, are those which privately unfold for the listener.

THE DNA OF THE PIECE

 

Just as painters create earlier, smaller sketches of a canvas, some musical pieces have a similar history. Here's the geneology of REMEMBRANCE. The piece was composed using material from the second movement, EBB, of a string quintet titled, CURRENT EVENTS.

Recorded in June 2003 in Los Angeles, CA.
