My quintet is in a bit different vein than most of my recent work. While many of my pieces are preoccupied with dance rhythms and simple melodic motives, this work is rich in harmony, but somewhat traditional in rhythmic and formal structures. Honestly, this piece has me bit more insecure than usual, because I’m striking out on a path that I haven’t travelled in some time. I hope to see you at one of the performances!
