Tangled Memories
Instrumentation: English Horn
Fifteen Minutes of Fame

Composed for Anne Goldberg’s “15 Minutes of Fame”

The first thing that comes to my mind when I think of the English Horn is the famous solo from the 2nd movement of Dvorak’s Ninth Symphony. I think this is due to the number of times I listened to this work as a teenager. To my young mind this was one of the greatest pieces of music ever. Now, I don’t much care for it all.... It’s funny how tastes change over time. Tangled Memories dissects the original solo, in search of my youthful ennui.
