Program Notes

In 2007, two fellow students at The Hartt School organized a speed-composing concert. The idea was that composers would be randomly assigned performers and would need to write a piece for them within an hour. The players would then have another sixty minutes to learn the new works before presenting them in concert. 

For the project, I was assigned a vocalist and alto saxophonist. Since a copy of Ovid’s Metamorphoses was on my desk at the time, I used an excerpt as the text of the resulting piece, Epilogue. The work was premiered by Kate Dunphy (voice) and Joe D’Aleo (saxophone). A version for voice and viola was later created for violist and composer Russell Podgorsek.
