Trail / Stephen Parkinson (2001)
Trail places no remarkable technical demands on the performer. Instead, it asks the pianist to make interesting music from the simplest of materials and the barest of textures. This is a daunting challenge few performers are willing to accept. Eve has applied her consummate musicianship and sensitivity to Trail, and, once again, I feel very fortunate to have Eve perform my music. Thank you Eve. Trail is dedicated, with love, to Emily 24.
