What They Don't Know (2009)
two french horns, piano, bag of broken glass 6'
Premiered by Katie Petrarulo, Pittsburgh, PA.
A work fit for a french horn recital, this piece has a bombastic opening with quick piano chords, horn rips, and percussive hits on a bag of broken glass. It traverses a dense emotional territory to end victorious. Melodies and chords from Radiohead inspired much of the work.
