Simple Soliloquy

Flute and Harp

A “soliloquy” is literally the idea of talking to oneself. As I was writing this, I had no formal structure in mind, no specific motivic development or harmonic devices, but as I started sketching ideas, these things began to come together. I found myself free to write more for the people in mind, rather than any overarching formal or programmatic plan. 

To Have and To Hold

For B-Flat Clarinet, Viola, Cello, Piano. Composed for the wedding of two friends. The melodic material is very angular yet lyrical with extended yet accessible harmonies.
