Program Notes:

In Six Pieces for Horn Solo, each of the six pieces represents a character, a real person who I knew during my mandatory army service. I found that the horn, with its register and timbre contrasts could best represent the psychological qualities of the six characters, and to tell us their unwritten story. Some of the characters are peaceful, some agitated, and one character even fights with itself. I leave it to the listener to decide who is who.
