Originally commissioned by the Brass and Percussion Ensemble of the National Orchestra of Lyon, Notezart for wind symphony is dedicated to Eugene Corporon - friend, conductor, and devoted champion of new music.

I very much enjoy finding a way to make various kinds of music live together. So in this piece, you will hear 12-tone passages along with quartal/quintal and triadic harmony. To create unity, I use a steady pulse throughout and a strong reliance on the interval of the perfect 4th which opens the third movement from Mozart’s Eine Kleine Nachtmusik - inspiration for Notezart. My “stolen” music (the work’s centerpiece) is cast in a quasi-Renaissance style - with the exception of the the duet between trumpet and trombone, more in keeping with an 18th-century variation.
