Misc. Comments

“[The piece] was directly inspired by a recorded performance of the Debussy Sonata by Benjamin Britten and Mstislav Rostropovich, which I felt penetrated the music in new and wonderful ways. My musical language is very different from Debussy’s, but I sought to capture some of the textures and momentum of his sonata. The careful listener will find a brief quotation in the first movement.”

—Vivian Fine, note to the score
