Piano Concerto with Chamber Winds

My Piano Concerto with Chamber Winds was written without a commission, though I had a pianist / conductor in mind; I simply wished to write a piano concerto. When I completed the initial 12-minute score, I gave it into the hands and ears of my husband Stephen and my colleague Lee Actor, whose responses and critiques encouraged me to revise and expand the work.

Each of the three movements features lyrical themes, and my characteristic shifting compound meters and tonal/modal sound. My thanks to Stephen and Lee for their help in bringing the concerto to fruition.
