Piano Quintet (2008)

violin I, violin II, viola, 'cello, piano
duration 10'

This is moody modal music. Piano Quintet comes close to summing up my artistic development over my freshman year at Centenary College of Louisiana.

Studying composition formally for the first time, both my ears and my mind were challenged constantly. I was exposed to Bartok sounds, Hindemith sounds, to Prokofiev sounds. While I struggled to reconcile the foundation of my own musical voice with a vibrantly new and open sense of tonality I came up with this roughly 10-minute-long musical exposition that, to this day, I can think of no real title for.
