Program Notes:

Inflections and Innuendoes is cast in four short movements. The musical influence of Ligeti (especially his Piano Etudes, Book I) is prominent throughout, primarily in terms of dramatic pacing and registral organization.

The titles used in this piece were taken from Wallace Stevens poem, Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird, which was a source of extramusical inspiration for the composer. Inflections and Innuendoes is not, however, intended to be a musical narrative of Stevens poem.
