Written for Carol Viera
"Written in November 2002, EME was inspired by and written for the composer's wife, friend and co-director of the Frequency Band, Carol Viera.
Among his wife's interests and pursuits, is what the composer calls "her magical
relationship with gardens and gardening." EME is the name, chosen by the
composer, which he felt was in sympathy with the nature of this special
relationship. The composer writes, "It is it's own wonderful world of peace,
compassion and love of those fine aspects of nature that surrounds us...."
EME poses some definite technical challenges for the alto flute. The
euphonium part is very tonal and is meant to blend the texture of the alto flute
with the piano. During certain sections of the music, the piano is meant to sound more harplike—
extremely smooth with more lightness of touch.... The quintuplets in this section need to
be rhythmically very even and, at the same time, sound free and unlabored.
At letter C, the piano needs to dance like an elf and go for a 6/8 feeling. This
same feeling needs to be repeated by the alto flute in Measure 60...."
