-intermission-
Small, A Child's Dream
Chopin, f minor Ballade, Op. 52

About the program -- Hal writes:

"The Mozart is one of my favorites, full of vivaciousness and humor, and is unusual in taking on a concerto format, the last movement featuring a written out cadenza.

"My piece is essentially a spooky children's story. I imagine a haunted child, sliding down a rabbit hole into a mysterious, magical land, encountering scary hip-hopping monsters, becoming all alone and afraid, running for life, and... don't want to give it all away.

"And the Chopin, with its uniquely beautiful melody and ferociously exciting virtuosity, is of course one of the great romantic masterpieces."
