Composer's Notes

Dialogues for piano and chamber orchestra is a conversation between the soloist and the orchestra:  responding to each other, sometimes interrupting the other, or arguing.  The single varied movement is entirely derived from a small group of harmonies and rhythms.

Commissioned by the BBC for the brilliant young pianist, Nicolas Hodges, it was composed in New York during 2003.
