Up, Up and Up (2002)

violin and piano
or string orchestra | 11 mins.

Commissioned by Celebrity Series of Boston

Dedicated to then-15-year-old Stefan Jackiw, whose career was -- and still is -- ascendant, Up, Up and Up is full of rising melodic lines and optimistic cheer. The five short movements form a sort of arch, with a piece for violin alone as its keystone.

First performed by Stefan Jackiw and David Deveau
March 2002, Jordan Hall, Boston
