“Serenade of Fools was written for a performance with the Lo Cal Composers Ensemble, a consortium of composers with which I was a founding member in Los Angeles after graduating from UCLA in the mid-1980’s. The work addresses the idea of people blithely going about their own business, foolishly thinking they are collaborating on the same wavelength (i.e. same harmonic key) but not realizing that they are, in fact, worlds apart in principles. Through the course of the work, arguments surface and then wane without definite resolution, leaving the participants to meander along in a state of uneasy emptiness.”
Serenade of Fools was completed on April 25, 1986. The seven-minute work is scored for oboe, cello and piano.
