Programme Note:
A Moment in A is a short piece using the A octatonic scale.

This piece won a first prize at the 1991 Kiwanis Music Festival. The adjudicator, Clifford Crawley, had these encouraging words:

"I find this short piece thoroughly convincing. It is unpretentious, but has energy and a fine sense of direction. The string writing is effective despite its limited range. It is rhythmic without being 'nervous,' and the contrast of texture/colour, articulation and dynamics most effective. Convincing writing in two parts is not easy - Bach and Bartók were masters at it, and your piece has the same purposefulness and absence of needing a 3rd part as theirs.."

Premiere Information:
1990, Toronto; Students from University of Toronto
