Smooth Words and Fawning Looks (arr. 2013)

Smooth Words and Fawning Looks (arr. 2013) – for orchestra (5′)
——————————————-
-Originally written for 4-hands piano, this short prelude was arranged for orchestra in 2013, and utilizes various pitch collections taken from koto tunings and an extended percussion battery including: 3 sized pitched-nipple gongs, glockenspiel, crotales, vibraphone, finger cymbals, tam-tam, and bass drum. The title comes from the Confucius saying, “Smooth words and fawning looks are seldom found with love.” The work uses the title as an inspiration for form, splitting the piece into two halves: “Smooth words and fawning looks,” and, “are seldom found with love.”
-Also arranged for Wind Ensemble.
