PROGRAM NOTE:

My clarinet trio resolves to… explores the unsteady push-pull, departure and return, and tension deeply embedded in the Western music tradition. I explore this idea of musical tension by calling on influences from French impressionism, American minimalism, and traditional blues and jazz. Through this dialogue, we arrive at a point of balance, and a point of landing amidst the turbulent musical soundscape.
