Notes de programme :
Solus was composed in New York City in November 1996. It was commissioned by the Elaine Kaufman Cultural Center and was premiered by pianist Emma Tahmizian in January 1997 at Merkin Concert Hall in New York. The word "Solus" means "alone, by oneself." In composing the work, I imagined a flow of thoughts and vivid images passing through a person’s mind, with the freedom and ease that comes from being alone, without external distractions. This concept of thoughts flowing from one idea to the next is reflected in the free form of the composition, with frequent shifts in mood, rhythm, tempo,and texture. Although many aspects of the music are constantly evolving, the thematic material in the piece is closely related, with musical connections and relationships being established through constant development and variation of gestures and motives introduced in the opening section.
