About the Piece:
- Meliae (2009):This is a three movement piece written for trombone and Euphonium. It was inspired by a walk in Mill Creek Park during the fall of the composers’ first year at YSU. You can hear the fall of a giant tree branch (or the wood nymphs causing mischief in their play) in the glissando fall of the trombone in the first movement. The whole piece is in Dorian mode and experiments with varying textures and timbres created by two diverse, yet similar brass instruments.
