Programme Note

Composer Note:

The Ten Micro-Waltzes make up the third of my "tapestry" pieces (joining Fourteen Fabled Folksongs and Songs America Loves to Sing) in which a series of very short movements, in compact closed forms, is woven into a fabric that is more than the sum of its parts. In 2003-2004 Emmanuel Music, Boston, presented eight chamber concerts built around my music. The concerts were underwritten by friends of Emmanuel Music, dedicatees of the first eight waltzes. The last two are dedicated to the architects of the series.
