Programme Note:
Adagio for Violin and Piano was written in New York in June 1996 . It was premiered in Prague at the Dvorak Museum by Scott St. John and Heather Schmidt in August 1996. Scott St. John has nicknamed this piece The Mermaid's Lament, in reference to a hidden theme from one of Scott's favorite movies. The theme is scattered and buried in fragments throughout the movement, and is not recognizable in any way in its original form. The piece is written in a free form with musical materials continually evolving and developing. The overall atmosphere is one of darkness and dispair.

Premiere Information:
August 19 1996, Concert Hall of the Anton Dvorak Museum, Prague, Czech Republic; Scott St. John, violin; Heather Schmidt, piano.
