Commissioned by Noah Glynn for the third annual Sgt. Katherine E. Brunnelle Memorial Concert in Lincoln, NH
Black Satin Triptych is a tango fantasy: tango because that was what conductor Noah Glynn requested when commissioning the work, and fantasy because other musical styles kept creeping in, making the piece a very non-traditional sort of tango. The three main sections of the composition follow a medium – slow – fast scheme and share certain themes and gestures, though each explores a unique subset of the varied moods and emotions that can be expressed through tango. This work was composed for the third annual Sgt. Katherine E. Brunnelle Memorial Concert in Lincoln, NH, where it was premiered in April 2010.
