Sinfonia Concertante (2013) is dedicated to Walter Simmons and Ronnie Halperin. The five movements of the work draw primarily upon stylistic elements of medieval and Renaissance music, though viewed within a contemporary context. The title “Sinfonia” is used in one of its 17th century senses: a small collection of modest instrumental movements. The fourth movement, an expressive ground, remembers the American composer Lee Hoiby (1926–2011).
