Hi All,

I hope you’ll take a look/listen to a 2-way video (scrolling score and live performance) of my Amen: Quintet Fantasy on the Plagal Cadence, now on YouTube: https://youtu.be/l1axpiEUCA4
I was delighted to collaborate as pianist with all-star Indiana University Jacobs School faculty  — Kathryn Lukas, flute; Howard Klug, clarinet; Simin Ganatra, violin; Brandon Vamos, cello in this performance from a recital in March.

This piece could be described as a twenty minute musical set-up for the last gesture, a simple two-chord "Amen" progression played by piano alone. It might be better first to listen to the concluding lyric section that turns the “Amen” plagal cadence into a jazz-styled tune (beginning at 16:52). Everything in the preceding music leads to this!
