...As Like a Raging Fire...

More about the composer


Program note

Commissioned and premiered by Network for New Music on February 24, 2002 in Philadelphia, conducted by Jennifer Higdon, ...as like a raging fire... was composed for flute, clarinet, violin, cello, and piano, with a commissioning grant form Meet The Composer's Commissioning/USA program. In the music, I've expressed my impression of a raging fire, which is external but also internal — it's in nature but also in spirit.
