Instrumentation: Piano Trio (Violin, Cello, and Piano)
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.
