After an etching by Thomas Wood (1951-2022).
About this piece the composer writes: “Thomas Wood’s etchings are among my favorite in the genre. Over the years, I have gathered 9 or 10 and consider them foundational to my art collection. His images are musical to me in their elegance, melancholy tone, and in the case of Across the Arno, a lavish complexity.
The music inspired by the etching responds to the energy above and below the sun. Also, in honor of the way of seeing I learned from Thomas Wood, I offer this work in his memory.”
