I wrote the Divertimento for oboe, clarinet and bassoon in 1995 as an entry in the New England Reed Trio annual composition competition. I had admired the playing of this group and their promotion of wonderful, if rarely heard repertoire of this combination, much of it French. The prospect of writing for reed trio seemed […]

In my 2007 commissioned symphonic biography of Bill’s life, the essential, recurring “Barbara” theme is always played by the flute. This chamber work for flute quartet takes that “Barbara” theme […]
