  • Program Note:

    A beautiful love poem is here set in a rhythmic and energetic fashion. The kind of energy brought to real romance and relationships. The melodies are angular and unsettled like a good marriage. And the piano accompaniment propels the music forward with hope for a long and prosperous future.

    Dedicated to Janet Galván.
