This lighthearted quodlibet was commissioned by ASTA and premiered at the 2015 conference. It provides a fabulous tool to introduce your students to key musical themes across time. The score plays off of the musician’s nocturnal mind to combine twelve historic themes by condensing and expanding them the way our subconscious mind often toys with daytime experiences. In total, this composition celebrates the string player’s full potential: Where loyalty to the written note serves the imagination’s creative playground. What is composition, if not a grand improvisation captured in a snapshot?
