Description

Composer's Note:

Umbrian Suite (1998) is a lively three-movement piece for two pianos or piano four-hands.  The music was written in Italy during a residency at the Civitella Ranieri Center, an international artists' retreat housed in a medieval castle overlooking a small hilltown in Umbria.  The movements do not have descriptive titles but are reflections on the contrasts between life in the busy little hilltowns north of Rome and the Italian countryside.  The three short movements alternate tempos of fast, slow, and fast.
