Programme Note

Written for pianist Emma Tahmiziàn. Premiered at Weill Hall at Carnegie Hall in April 1999. Color Wheel begins with a series of thirty six isolated chords. The wheel revolves around musical space. As the wheel turns, its momentum increases, one notch at a time. When it moves fast enough, it changes into something else: a fast whirling fugue, where the emphasis is no longer on the color of individual chords but on the movement of several entangled lines.
