Sourdough Serenade (2013) was written for Jonah Kappraff on the occasion of his 30th birthday. The music’s inspiration comes from bread making, and specifically the work done by yeast (living microorganisms) in the process. Bread making requires patience—patience to set in motion and then allow natural developmental processes to unfold. This music follows a similar path.
