Date Completed:April 28, 2000
Duration:about 3 and a half minutes
Instrumentation:piccolo
First Performance:Jennifer Samardak, piccolo
Comments:for Cara Bianco
Program Notes:from above was written April 25-28, 2000 as a graduation present for Cara Bianco, who had been an important and steadfast member of the flute section of the University of Pittsburgh Chamber Orchestra throughout her career as an undergraduate. Since she particularly enjoyed playing piccolo I decided to write something for that instrument which would reflect her quiet yet intense virtuosity. The first performance was given by Jennifer Samardak on a New Music Group/Daedalus concert, Akron, Ohio.
