  • Maple (2011) flute, viola + guitar

    “Maple” is directly influenced and inspired by Scott Joplin’s “Maple Leaf Rag”. At first his influence is held back and made to keep its distance. Then in the second movement, there is endless and obsessive fascination with his brilliant small riffs and harmonies. Finally, the third movement all out steals.

    Premiered:
    Joshua Romatowski, flute; Kristin Zimmerman, viola; Grant Ferris, guitar
    San Francisco, California on April 20, 2012

  • Aloft (2011) violin, cello + piano

    Awarded the 2012 Kris Getz Award at the San Francisco Conservatory

    “Aloft” for violin, cello, and piano is music about music. Inspired by the cherubic sensations heard in Olivier Messiaen’s Quartet, this melodic allusion to the shared musical language of Debussy blurs ancestry and existent. No revolution is attempted – only respectful applause of the enduring.

    Live recording of Kevin Rogers, violin; Anne Suda, Cello; Stepan Rudenko, piano  SFNewmusic’s “For the End of Time” at Zion Lutheran Church in San Francisco, CA. May 14, 2011
