Program Notes: "Eugene" was born from reactions. This year I was introduced to the composer Eugene Bozza and his piece "Suite Breve en Trio." I became completely obsessed with this trio and these moments of call and response within it that seem to ominously spiral and trail off before somehow finding their way back to a humorous or grounded place. I latched on to this idea and a couple of brief quotes from his trio and used them as the building blocks for my piece creating a new road map outlining the narrative of my newfound Eugene Bozza obsession.
Premiered at the 2017 Fresh Inc Festival by the Phoenix Down Trio July 17th, 2017, Bedford Concert Hall, University of Wisconsin-Parkside
