Music for Viola and Piano was written in 1997. The music explores the relationships of two musical characters. At times, these characters are delineated by any number of elements including harmony, rhythm, timbre, or tessitura. At certain times two instruments share common material and one character speaks independently. On a global scale, the work is delineated by four movements. All of the movements are constructed of very similar shapes, and movements two through four are shorter in length than the movement which precedes them resulting in a "telescoped" form.
