Pixe Program Notes

 This brief work imagines the adventures of a tiny, mythical (and mischievous) creature.  The mood is playful, and sometimes pensive.  The piece was written for my girlfriend (now wife), Becca, for her birthday.  It spins out from a motive based on her name (B-E-C-C-A), which is played twice at the opening.  Given her slight stature and playful nature, Pixie was a natural title.
