"Why Me Disagrees? My intention was to write a piece that would depict an argument that is not overly aggressive. Instead, it is to be playfully competitive, cheeky, and even somewhat humorous at times. 'I Disagree' is a strong statement, which would not reflect the lighthearted spirit of the original idea. So I decided to make it sound like something a naughty child might say to defy authority: 'Me Disagrees! End of story.'
The original version of this piece is a trio for flute, alto saxophone and piano. It was commissioned by The Americas Trio and composed in 2010. While writing the piano part, I caught myself hearing big band sounds in my head in all the major climactic moments. Therefore, even before I finished writing the trio version, I knew that one day I would make it work for the wind orchestra, as well… The wind symphony version was commissioned by the Cornell University wind symphony and Cynthia Johnston Turner (conductor), who premiered it in November 2013."
