Program Notes:Roger Zahab: thursday night
I wrote this on February 1, 2001 for an undergraduate pre-med/violin student, Chris Kizina, whose favorite day of the week was Thursday, because it marked the beginning of the weekend! I gave only the first performance on February 15, 2001 - it has been performed many times since by musicians breaking lose from dull routine.
