PROGRAM NOTES: The violin Encore is a reworking of the first piece from my Opus 2 for chamber orchestra.
While Op.2 is comprised of four multi-layered polyphonic pieces, in the current work I saw the possibility of filtering out the multitude of lines, thus bringing to the foreground material which exhibited strong—yet unfullfiled—diatonic tendencies.
