Work Overview

memory pieces is very much a personal exploration of memory using the associations and interconnections of Walwicz’s text.  The composer hopes this reading and the following ‘explanation’ will not detract from the text’s ambiguities and the possibility of a wide range of interpretive responses to both the words and the music.
