Slawson Music

Performed by Candice Lee (piano), Lenora Cox (violin), and Eric Stephenson (cello).

I. Agitato

wild activity
big mood swings
underlying tension
nervous and agitated themes
rhythmic and harmonic complexity

III. Calmato

On this moonlit, summer night,
The abandoned rowboat rests
Motionless in the still water.
The nocturnal community begins to stir.

II. Fantasia

Influenced by an Indian raga,
this is one of my favorite pieces:
melodic, meditative, and expressive,
with a dramatic ending.

IV. Energico

wickedly humorous
kind of Russian
active
