Description: Inspired by a painting by Jared FitzGerald. The germinating idea for the piece relates to its image of an angel in the moonlight, wrestling with a shadowy figure. “Dark Dreams” extends the metaphor to the struggles with “emotional demons” confronted in life. (Concert performance: Jacqueline Leclair, Eng. hrn; Evan Spritzer, cl; Richard Vrotney, bsn; Joseph Kubera, pno; Vita Wallace & Theresa Salomon, vlns; Liuh-Wen Ting, vla; Ariane Lallemand, vc.)
