program notes:

"Dancing Through Time" features three untitled movements, each with its own enigmatic, trancendent character. The music explodes with the colors of each ensemble instrument in an exciting array of combinations and expressions. The two soloists engage in a dance that moves freely from virtuostic intricacy through serene beauty. The work makes use of amplification for the two soloists, the guitars (acoustic & electric) and a full set of five string players.

"Dancing Through Time" was composed for two great solo artists, Stephen Schultz (Baroque flute) and David Harding (viola), who are friends and colleagues of the composer at Carnegie Mellon University, and for the world-class Carnegie Mellon Contemporary Ensemble led by Daniel Nesta Curtis.
