Program Notes: Exclamations (2012) consists of three short movements— all thematically interrelated— as two fast movements enclosing a slower more pensive movement. The name of this work reflects the brief and straightforwardness of each of the movements. They are concise statements (in considerably shorter lengths than I usually work with) and they are more or less characterized by their respective titles: I. Fanfaresque, II. Exhalation,  III. Outburst.
