Duet for English Horn and Horn (2009)

I. Melody
II. Chant
III. Finale

This piece was commissioned by Brian Mayer to be played at a benefit for his church in Yellow Springs, OH, in June 2010. The three movements play with modal ideas and intervals of the 4th and 5th. The first movement is a seamless melody, whereas the second movement is three sections with multi-phonics in the horn, and the third movement is a play on a fanfare/march.

Premiered at Stephanie's senior recital 4/09/10 at the NIU school of music concert hall by Brian Mayer (horn) and Stephanie Pieczynski (English horn). Performed again at the church benefit in June of 2010.
