Program Notes

Written during a time when friends of mine were facing the loss of family members, Lontano is a rich and romantic work that narrates the sorrows of being distanced from a loved one.  The piece is tempestuous and stormy at times, yet is interspersed with moments of reflection and intimacy.  Meaning “far away” in Italian, Lontano attempts to summarize an indescribable feeling of longing and nostalgia.

The piece is dedicated to the memory of a loss in the Crossley family.
