Programme Note:
Dream Reflection, drawn from a dream sequence, features elements of surprise, unexpected juxtapositions, as an expression of the unconscious…The first section of the piece, in a « freely » tempo, is about seeing our reflection in a dream as our true self; it highlights both our flaws and positive attributes, and we should learn from our flaws and how to improve them. The clarinet introduce a motif that will reoccur in different moods and textures but gradually lead toward a livelier context…The second section, Giocoso « playful », is a reflection (mirror) on how you want others to see you. The faster tempo features some rhythmic games while a little motif gradually develops, grows amongs other melodies; that motif will unexpectedly take over the entire piece at the end.The audience will recognize some elements of both jazz and baroque music; an association that recurrently appears in my « musical » dreams…Performance History:Dream Reflection was premiered on March 29, 2015 by the Turning Point Ensemble, in Vancouver, BC, Canada.

Premiere Information:
29 Mar 2015, Orpheum Annex, Vancouver
