Comments  Forgotten at Dawn... refers to the sensation of waking from a dream unable to remember what the dream was about. The piece is a theme with four variations, or "not-quite-remembered repetitions". Between each variation is a solo for one of the instruments and a rhythmic exploration of harmonies based on the theme. This work was commissioned by the Madison chapter of the Wisconsin Alliance for Composers for the "99-cent Concert Series."
