Written while living in a Tibetan Buddhist temple in Hawaii in 1976 for the violinist Jeannie Doe. These are not technically difficult pieces, although they capture the many varied moods of this very lovely lady... somewhat a portrait in sound. Well, actually, “Swift and Elusive Jeannie” requires significant chops, and Movement 4, a flair for the dramatic.
