Pastiche: Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Pastiche is a term that in music means that a composer is using material or technique from another composer to create new music. Even Beethoven, one of history’s most original composers, used pastiche. I was inspired to form this program based on a quote by French author Andre Gidé, who said “Everything that needs to be said has already been said. But since no one was listening. Everything must be said again.” The program: Antique Suite by John Rutter's; selections from Carnival of the Animals by Camille Saint-Saëns'; Three Pieces for Clarinet and Piano by Paquito D’Rivera; and, the Piano Trio in B Flat op. 1, no. 1 by Ludwig van Beethoven performed by artist musicians Thomas Collum, violin; Tyler Michael James, cello; Monika Varess Woods, clarinet; Eric Maul, flute; and myself on piano.
