A SINGLE NOON

A SINGLE NOON

A SINGLE NOON

Instrumentation: cello and piano

Duration: 3 minutes

Composed: 2007


The opening of movement of my NYC-inspired piano suite, A Single Noon, is the sort of thing you might hum to yourself while taking a walk. The sighing theme - sweet, faintly nostalgic - feels just right for the rich timbre of the cello.

UNDERCURRENT

Instrumentation: cello and piano

Duration: 15 minutes

Composed: 2013


Sometimes there's a disconnect between the things we feel and the things we say; Undercurrent explores where the two meet. The simmering line that the cello and piano pass back and forth is always churning away just under the surface, like the fraught subtext that sometimes attends our most intimate conversations - until it bubbles up and explodes. (Some relationships are, um... dynamic.) The middle movement evokes that fragile place of unspoken intimacy - where a glance, a gesture, a touch can mean everything.
