Programme Note:
Schumann Scenes (2009) was commissioned by the Canadian Music Centre through the Norman Burgess Memorial Fund as part of their New Music for Young Musicians program. The work, suitable for high school age performers, was created in consultation with Jean MacRae, director of the Ensemble Dolce Musica in Montreal.

The title, Schumann Scenes, references the appropriation of selected pieces from Robert Schumann's Album fur die Jugend, each corresponding to a movement in the present work. The formal outlines of the original pieces are maintained, though the musical materials - pitch, rhythm, gesture - undergo substantial change.
