Duration: 5'00

Premiere: March 26, 2018 at University of Michigan McIntosh Theater

Performers: Koinonia Trio: Christine Harada Li, Violin, Nathaniel Pierce, Cello, and Hyejin Cho, Piano

Program Note: There is something magical about flicking on a lighter or striking a match. "Ignite" captures this sudden burst of energy, the strange calm that happens immediately after the tiny explosion, and the dance-like motions of a fragile flame.

Ignite was written for the Koinonia Trio in January 2018.
