Songs of the Mouse People
This work is based on Franz Kafka's last short work Josephine the Singer or the Mouse People. In that valedictory story, Kafka meditates on a mouse diva, Josephine, and the relationship to both her art and her audience. Commissioned by Maya Beiser and Steven Schick, with help from the Connecticut Commision on the Arts, this work for cello and vibraphone is both challenging and unique.
Flute Sonata No.2
A little different than the composer's first sonata for flute, Flute Sonata No. 2 is more dissonant and the musical ideas are epigrammatic in nature. In the first sonata, development of each theme is discrete from the next. In the second sonata, the development of ideas are often simultaneous creating a more 'cellular' sound. The second sonata is also in rondo form, a break from the more traditional ABA form found in the first sonata. A challenging piece, Sonata No. 2 is strong piece for a contemporary recital.
