Op. 1, No. 1 is a loooooooong bout of off-and-on work. Many iterations and reinventions have lead up to its final form. After 11+ years, I think I'm finally done with molding it into existence. 


Affectionately known as "Dumeh", this piece could be referred to as contemporary classical, but I really don't know the "correct" genre. Regardless, Dumeh is in a modified sonata-allegro format with piano being the star. The string section is no slouch, however, and I had fun writing those parts to complement the keys. It's the one piece of music in my repertoire that I'd love to hear performed live at a concert, just as if I were one of those stodgy, yet eminently professional composer/conductors.
