Program Notes:

The interplay of call and response has been around for a long time, afterall, so sing the birds. Call and response could very well have been the first form of human dialogue and from it derived the amazing yet mysterious acquisition of language. Though in a broader context, the concept of call and response can be understood to have significance associated with the drama of life, what life asks of us, and how we respond to these nudges. All of this, for a composer, can best be addressed using musical language.
