Ballade

In this short piece I wanted to write music with a melody that grows out of the texture before descending into it again; a work that constantly shifts from a complex, multi-layered texture to concentrated single lines and back again.

Why Ballade? Manny asked specifically for a piece bearing this title, and I wrote it for him in July 2005.
