American Vernacular: New Music for Solo Piano (2014)

,

Instrumentation
Piano


Beloved grows out of my current mode of “remembrance” pieces. These include Requiem for wind ensemble, A Solemn Music for solo marimba, and Remember Me for cello and 19 players. Each of these pieces has the quality of resolution of deep issues of past trauma or grief, both my own, and some element of huge world traumas such as Hiroshima or the Holocaust. Beloved feels both personal, and larger than personal. It has the quality of one side of a conversation – what you have to say to your beloved, especially one departed.
