Program Note

"Passion brings us together in celebration; the impermanence of life adds urgency to our loves. Here we get a music of interpenetrating melodies rising and falling like breaths and pulses and racing hearts, unrelentingly driving towards climactic ecstasy, a musical reflection on our most urgent passions."

--Matthew H. Fields
