Duration: 5 min
Commission: Leah Hokanson, piano
Premiere: Leah Hokanson, piano - January 25, 2002; Kansas City, MO
Program Note: "Spur of the Moment" (2000) was written for pianist Leah Hokanson. The piece consists of five short movements, each capturing a particular mood or moment I happened to be in while writing the piece. Instead of telling the pianist and the audience which movement stands for which mood, I decided to label them simply with the numbers one through five, letting the music speak for itself.
