21st Century (2003). The Omaggio [Hommage] a [to] Verdi includes many recognizable features of the Italian master's work, together with a subtle dramatization, minus the parody, that clearly delineates those issues which provide separation from, while atthe same time which bind us to this bygone era.

I chose serialism to complement images of Kollwitz's artwork, and the medium of the woodwindquintet was ideal in musically portraying the contrasts of light and darkness inherent in her style."

He slips into a mood of reveries and reminicences, as represented by the slower lyrical passages. But to the next table come a few blades of the younger generation, who not only interrupt the peaceful ambience but actually make fun of the old fellow and his ways.
