Program Notes

On the Edge of Sleep & Dreaming is composed in the manner of a Baroque chamber sonata, in four movements of contrasting slow-fast-slow-fast tempi. As suggested by the title, this piece was intended to suggest something of those moments, when poised between wakefulness and sleep, the border between reality and dreaming is blurred. The instrumentation of this trio seemed to lend itself well to that sort of feeling.
