Certain Octobers was inspired by a poem of the same name by Irish poet Jo Slade. The poem is comprised of four separate sections dealing with memories of a deceased child. Those memories are triggered and filtered through imagery of fall, moving through various dark emotions until a sort of resignation is returned to. In this piano trio, I have tried to capture the sense of journey and ambiguous catharsis expressed in Ms. Slade’s words.
