Program Notes

This music was written in response to the separation of children from their migrant parents carried out by the Trump administration, in what can, to my mind, only be called crimes against humanity. Only those who are dead inside can fail to hear the cries of children calling out for their parents echoing endlessly in the chambers of the heart. This music won’t change anything, I’m afraid, but I needed to write it – and the plaintive sound of saxophones seemed right for this.
