Composer Note

Hot Pepper was commissioned for Camerata Pacifica by Bob Peirce as a birthday celebration for his wife, Sharon Harroun Peirce. The premiere of the work took place on September 10, 2010, with Catherine Leonard (violin) and Ji Hye Jung (marimba).

The two-movement work is based on a folk song from China’s Si Chuan province, which is well known for its hot and spicy cuisine.
