San Jose Nocturnes (2016)

For Piano

[ca. 7 1/2 minutes]

These two Nocturnes are dedicated to the great friends I made during Opera San Jose’s February 2015 production of Where Angels Fear to Tread.

No. 1 – To Laurie and Mike Warner

Laurie is on the board of OSJ. She and her husband Mike were wonderful hosts to my wife Amy and I during our frequent visits to San Jose.

No. 2 – To Larry Hancock

It was Larry’s courage and vision that made the professional premiere of Where Angels Fear to Tread happen. I am extremely grateful for his confidence in the opera and his invaluable leadership.
