Dedication: Teresa Sumpter

Movements: To be determined

Program Note: immer weich (Hommage à Schubert) was composed at the request of my colleague and friend Teresa Sumpter as a tribute to a composer for whom we share a deep admiration. The piece is nowhere near the style or harmonic language of Schubert but rather captures qualities of the master composer's finest works: an elegant lyricism, a penchant for miniatures, and a refined sensibility for touch on the keyboard. immer weich is a 21st-century companion to Schubert's Moments Musicaux, D. 780.
