San Jose State University, October 1st, 12:15pm
Sacramento State University, October 2nd, 4:00pm

Program Note: When granted the opportunity to write for the Silver Keys Trio’s instrumentation, my wife and I had just begun to expect our new daughter. I swung between exhaustive fragility and terrifying elation and still do with Alice now here and born. This text has become my much needed mantra, as anything I do, from parenting to music, is destined to fail without love. My deepest thanks go to the virtuosic Silver Keys Trio for organizing the commissioning consortium that brought about this seven movement piece.

I Might Speak
With Tongues of Angles
Yet Without Love
I
Have Now Become
A Clanging Cymbal
Resounding

Score Published Through Imagine Music Publishing Coming November 2016
