Artistic Statement

This piece is about a relationship I had that recently ended. It follows a poem that I have written and included on the title page. It starts out with infatuation between two people (the horn and clarinet) and follows them through falling in love and their relationship to one another as complications arise and they start to fall away from one another. The two wind parts represent the outward communication between the two people and the piano illustrates their inward emotions regarding one another.
