Program Notes

Who will win in the epic battle between good and evil?  Satummoo Vs. Reptar is written for and dedicated to my brother, Michael, who has a fantastical imagination and an amazing sense of humor.  I projected my writing through his understanding of musical style.  By writing through his eyes the piece basically wrote itself because my decisions were very limited. This virtuosic solo features rhythmic double stops and extended techniques to highlight Michael’s expressive playing style.
