Commissioned by by Martin Kennedy

Recording by Molly Morkoski, piano

SPARKLE EPOXIPLAST 2000 was written for pianist and composer Martin Kennedy, in a musical form that I like to call a circular rondo. The piece is a spiraling carousel around the fifths, filled with jazz harmonies, tangential excursions, and joie de vivre. Its the fast virtuosic flourishes are the sparkle, the sinuous chorales are the epoxiplast, and the millennial fervor of the time is the 2000.
