Distances (2020) [PDF SCORE ONLY]



*score only available upon request

Distances was commissioned by the Albany Symphony Orchestra in 2020 and premiered in February 2021. This work explores themes of strong emotions and anxieties that society has been recently affected by due to the almost “New World Order” that living in the Pandemic (COVID-19) has caused. The work is full of ambiguity and lingering passages that evoke the emotions of contemporary society. In general, I feel that reflections on society and deep, intense emotions in my work are essential to my work as an artist. A mirror image of who we truly are and what lurks beneath the surface is what this and my other work have and will continue to deal with. -T.D. 12.23.20
